Tony L. Turnbow: Hardened to Hickory Presentation and Q&A

June 18 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Join us at 6 pm on Tuesday, June 18 for an entertaining presentation, reading and Q&A session with Tony L. Turnbow, the author of Hardened to Hickory: The Missing Chapter in Andrew Jackson’s Life. A fascinating book, Hardened to Hickory details Jackson’s command of the original Tennessee Volunteers and reveals a more human side of Jackson than has often been portrayed. Kirkus Reviews calls Hardened to Hickory “an impressive combination of scrupulous scholarship and powerful storytelling.”

A practicing lawyer in Franklin, TN, Mr. Turnbow spent seven years tracking down unpublished documents to tell the story of Jackson’s first military command. This is the riveting tale of a missing chapter in the life of the man who became known as Old Hickory. Don’t miss this event, an evening of edifying storytelling and history important to both Tennessee and the nation as a whole.
