Special from Dennis Jenkins
Today we went to Andrew Jackson’s Hermitage in Nashville. We toured the Museum, the Mansion, Jackson’s tomb and the Nature Trail beyond the Mansion.
We were just finishing our nature walk when we got caught in a brief heavy rain, but we all survived and I think the students enjoyed the trip! Some students got a souvenir in the gift shop.
On the way home we stopped at Wendy’s for lunch. We also stopped at the Aviation Park in Bowling Green where students got to see actual planes from different time periods.
We hope the students have enjoyed learning about the presidency of Andrew Jackson as we have contrasted decisions he made with the issues of the more recent presidents.
