#thehermitage #nashvillesites #nashvilletours We had the opportunity to visit The Hermitage, the 7th president of the United States, Andrew Jackson’s home in Nashville TN. Andrew Jackson purchased the land in the early 1800’s completing the first home between 1819 and 1821. The current structure is the 3rd rebuild completed in 1837 after heavy fire damage. This was a great opportunity to visit a part of early 1800’s history, discover life during this period, even the political struggles that had a great impact on our nation. One other point. There are many aspects of life during this period and this presidency that offer dark parts to US history and the people it impacted. A statement was made by one of the presenters during the introductory video viewed in the museum stating: “History is messy.” I couldn’t agree more. I’m a huge history buff. My hope is our history, regardless of what it was at that time, we learn from it, and never to return to the darker parts.
