U.S. #1059 showcases the Hermitage, home of U.S. President Andrew Jackson. This stately mansion was built in 1818. A fire destroyed most of the building in 1834, and the following year it was rebuilt. Every year, thousands of tourists visit this 500-acre plantation near Nashville, Tennessee.
 
President Andrew Jackson’s Home – The Hermitage 
While practicing law, Andrew Jackson earned money by buying land and selling it to new settlers. Jackson turned a huge profit, purchasing the land for as little as 10¢ an acre and selling it for as much as $3 an acre. In 1804, he bought a large plantation 12 miles from Nashville, which became known as the Hermitage. 
 
During the next four decades, the Hermitage was transformed into a highly successful plantation. At the center of the estate is a beautiful Greek Revival mansion. Jackson and his wife Rachel were known for their hospitality and constantly entertaining guests. Today, the Hermitage has been restored to appear as it did during Jackson’s lifetime.
 
The Liberty Series
Issued to replace the 1938 Presidential series, this patriotic set of stamps honors guardians of freedom throughout U.S. history. Eighteenth century America is represented by Revolutionary War heroes and statesmen such as Washington, Jefferson, Franklin, Hamilton, Henry, Jay, and Revere.
 
Leaders of the 19th century including Monroe, Lincoln, Lee, Harrison, and Susan B. Anthony make an appearance. The 20th century is represented by Teddy Roosevelt, Woodrow Wilson, and General Pershing.
 
The Liberty Series also features famous locations important to America’s democratic history, such as Bunker Hill, Independence Hall, and the Alamo.
