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 7th 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. In 2021 proceeds benefited Reboot Combat Recovery Program, Gary Sinise Foundation, Curb Liberty Hall, USO Nashville, Volunteers of America for Veterans, The Family Center, Youth Villages, Andrew Jackson Foundation, and many more worthy community efforts.
On Saturday, November 5th, there will be a patriotic fireworks display beginning at 7:00 p.m. The Field of Honor® and the fireworks are free of charge and open to the public. Come with your family and friends to walk among the flags and experience the Spirit of America as you never have before.
This is an event not to be missed.
