Andrew Jackson arrived at The Hermitage in 1804 with nine slaves. By 1821, Jackson owned 50 slaves through births and additional purchases. In 1823 Jackson sold a plantation he owned in Alabama and brought another 30 enslaved African Americans here. . . Faced with a pressing need for additional slave housing, he built several new cabins and converted his old log farmhouse into a one-story slave cabin. Over the next 30 years, Jackson’s slave population continued to grow, peaking at 150. . . This photo shows Alfred outside of the First Hermitage. . .
