When the DAR unveiled boulder for Old Hickory
Placeholder Image
It was a grand occasion that mid-November day in 1928 near Flowery Branch when the Daughters of the American Revolution dedicated a boulder marking where Gen. Andrew Jackson spent the night at Young’s Tavern. Several hundred people attended the ceremony presided over by DAR Regent Mrs. C.A. Rudolph. An American flag draped over the boulder, and other flags formed a background with flowers and greenery.
