President Jackson’s 252nd Birthday Celebration

March 15, 2019 @ 8:00 AM - 5:00 PM

Join us to celebrate President Jackson’s 252nd Birthday on Friday, March 15 and receive half-price general admission for the day! The celebration will include our annual wreath-laying ceremony with the Tennessee National Guard and US 7th Infantry at 11 am at the President’s Tomb.

In addition, guests will get to enjoy the first day of the War of 1812 Military Encampment program! Guests will enjoy the rare opportunity to experience the sights, sounds, and smells of a 19th-century military encampment as General Jackson’s forces are encamped on the grounds of The Hermitage. Wander through the camp to meet with members of the militia (including the General himself!), participate in military drills and weapons demonstrations, watch the blacksmith repairing tools of the camp, and step inside the Tavern as citizens of Tennessee debate the politics and cultural issues of the day. Program is included with General Admission.

*This event will happen rain or shine*
