Jackson and Indians on a Timeline of All Recorded History

This is Bicentennial State Park, with a view of the Tennessee State Capitol on the high ground beyond. It is in Nashville, which was the headquarters of Andrew Jackson for most of his life. Completed in 1996 to mark the 200th anniversary of the state, the park is decorated with a long granite wall of history. It is engraved with events on this ground from well over 10,000 years ago, including the very long residence of native peoples who preceded the United States. The wall also includes more recent events, such as the early 19th century rise of Andrew Jackson and other Tennesseeans who played vital roles in the expansion of the United States.
