Column: Why flag didn't fly atop courthouse Fourth of July 1834
Some protesters recently wanted to remove Andrew Jackson’s statue in Lafayette Square across from the White House in the nation’s capital. The statue depicts the seventh president of the country waving his hat astride a rearing horse. The protest apparently is because Jackson was a slave owner and possibly slave trader, in addition to his presiding over the Indian Removal Act that forced Native Americans out of their homelands to territories west of the Mississippi River.
