Jon Meacham talks about The Hermitage: Pulitzer Prize winning author Jon Meacham talks about Andrew Jackson and the importance of the Hermitage to the former President on the 198th anniversary of the Battle of New Orleans.

The Hermitage was a hotspot today when more than 3,200 people gathered to commemorate the Jan. 8 anniversary of the Battle Of New Orleans and Andrew Jackson’s role in the battle that won the War of 1812.

A highlight was a keynote address by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Jon Meacham, who described Jackson as “the most important and, I think, least-known figure from the middle of our history.” He said Jackson “was the pivotal political figure between Jefferson and Lincoln..Meacham spent countless hours at the Andrew Jackson Home, The Hermitage, while researching his book “American Lion: Andrew Jackson in the White House.” He said the “best way to get to know Jackson is to visit The Hermitage. And he definitely was a man worth knowing.
