Stamptuary Hall: Andrew Jackson


Last week I posted about John Sevier, who is featured on a stamp along with Andrew Jackson. Jackson himself is also a statue in Statuary Hall; his sits, along with other presidents, in the Rotunda. And he’s been on a number of stamps, including this one.

While the links above give a brief biography of Jackson, none mention the controversies surrounding Jackson’s treatment of Native Americans. Instead, they focus on the reasons people would want to remember Jackson in stamp or statue form.

About Laura

Paralegal with Master of Arts in Teaching in Museum Education, frequent museum visitor, based in Washington, DC. I care about what museums can do, both in terms of public offerings and internal practices, to make the world a better place. I blog about museum education ("informed"), the social work of museums ("humane"), and visitor experience ("citizenry").
