Experience “The Duel – Art of the Southern Gentleman” now at Andrew Jackson’s Hermitage!
This 30-minute new visitor experience will answer questions such as “What was the process of a duel?” “Why did people choose to duel in the first place?,” followed by an ACTUAL dueling demonstration by our historic re-enactors. You never know, you may get picked from the crowd to participate! “The Duel” takes place every Thursday through Sunday from 10-3, free with paid admission. Remember, this spring, keep your friends close…and enemies closer.
Update on Andrew & Rachel Jackson’s Tomb:
Following an apparent act of vandalism of the tomb of President Andrew Jackson and his beloved wife Rachel in late April, we are happy to announce that the tomb has been restored to its original dignity and beauty. We want to thank everyone involved in this process, especially Chubb Insurance and CSOS, the restoration company. The next step is to increase security on site, both with state-of-the-art technology and heightened security protocols to prevent this from happening in the future. We continue to seek funding for the new security measures and for those wishing to assist, please visit: http://bit.ly/2HJvxky.Purchase tickets here!
