Andrew Jackson

Undoubtedly one of America's most successful generals, Andrew Jackson is the only general who conquered Pensacola twice.  Follow his armies.  Analyze the topography.  Armchair-quarterback his tactics.  Hear the local stories about visits.  Learn to appreciate why the Indians called him "Sharpeknife" and how the Spanish first feared and later admired him.  He's a president who deserves to be on our $20 bill.  The tour will travel by some of the surviving buildings of the period, Jacksonian battle sites, and also includes a tour inside the Quina House, which was new when Jackson first saw it in 1814.
