Andrew Jackson’s Hermitage, 4580 Rachel’s Lane, Hermitage, TN 37076
Featuring a calendar full of events, Andrew Jackson’s Hermitage draws visitors throughout the year. In what has become an annual highlight, the Exchange Club of Donelson-Hermitage and the Andrew Jackson’s Hermitage – Presidential Site post a thousand U.S. flags on Victory Field bringing the 5th Annual Hermitage Field of Honor® display to the Nashville area. The grounds of Andrew Jackson’s beloved home and the days surrounding Veterans Day provide the appropriate place and dates to honor veterans who through their service and sacrifice have given the Stars & Stripes meaning.
Flags may be sponsored for $30, and the sponsors retain the flags at the close of the event to be displayed in surrounding communities as mementos of the Hermitage Field of Honor display. The funds raised through the Field of Honor® flag display will benefit The Family Center working to “empower parents to raise happy, healthy children,” and Reboot Recovery working to provide trauma healing for military and first responders.
The vista of red, white and blue is hard to describe, but once experienced it is not to be forgotten. There will be no charge to visit the Field of Honor® display, and all are invited to walk with us through the ordered rows of flags. This is an event not to be missed.
