Title

The Hermitage, the residence and burial place of General Jackson

Description

A hand-colored lithograph of the Hermitage published shortly after Jackson's death. Jackson and Rachel's tomb, overhung by a willow, the symbol of mourning, is depicted to the right of the main house, before the prominent gardens were added. Lush woods surround the imposing, white-columned mansion as cattle graze on the front lawn. An unidentified man stands in the road.
