It’s the 251st birthday of Andrew Jackson, 7th President of the United States, born #onthisday in 1767. We commemorate it with a Ralph E.W. Earl oil-on-canvas painting that marks the time that it all began for Jackson, and maybe the Tennessee State Museum. This large portrait from our collection shows Jackson on the battlefield at New Orleans, where the general became a U. S. hero with his victory over the British in 1815. This painting and one of Napoleon were two of the objects specifically mentioned as having been displayed in Nashville's first museum, located on the city square and started by the Earl, c. 1817. We invite you to visit the State Museum to view our Jackson collection, but also highly recommend a visit to our friends down the road in Hermitage at Andrew Jackson's Hermitage.
