FREE Admission all day!
Visit The Hermitage and celebrate the 194th anniversary of the American victory at the Battle of New Orleans, which ended the War of 1812, sometimes referred to as the "Second War of Independence." This victory, led by General Andrew Jackson, left no doubt of America's independence and propelled Jackson on to an incredible journey in American politics. Join us for this patriotic celebration that was once rivaled in national importance only by the Fourth of July. Our special "Eighth of January" event includes a traditional ceremony at Jackson's tomb, walking tours, tour of the Hermitage mansion and more!
