Born in the Waxhaw Settlement, South Carolina
In October 1840, the city of New Orleans held a silver jubilee celebrating the twenty-fifth anniversary of the American victory over the British in the Battle of New Orleans. This portrait of Andrew Jackson, the aging hero of that battle, was based on a larger oil painting created during the jubilee. James Tooley Jr., a young Mississippi miniaturist, obtained permission to make a copy from the original.
