Hermitage Church (Andrew Jackson’s Hermitage), 4580 Rachel’s Lane, Hermitage, TN 37076

 

Join Andrew Jackson’s Hermitage for our annual commemoration of those once enslaved at The Hermitage and throughout the country. Held at The Hermitage Church, the service will feature music by The Eagle Honor Choir from Andrew Jackson Elementary School and special remarks from Vanderbilt University Professor Dennis C. Dickerson. Attendees will then be led in a procession to the slavery memorial “Follow the Drinking Gourd,” located behind the church. There, 150 flowers will be laid by attendees, marked with the names of all those known to have been enslaved at The Hermitage.
