What Would Andrew Jackson Say?

Standard

Yesterday, I mentioned that Emmett’s grandfather had a law partner, S.R. Mallory, and they worked in the Mallory Building in Pensacola during Reconstruction.

My friend and colleague, the excellent Jacki Wilson at the Pensacola HIstorical Society sent me this:

Jacki told me that what was on the original site of this building was Andrew Jackson’s house when he was the military governor of Florida in 1821.

Today, this is what is on the site:

From Andrew Jackson’s home to World of Beer. I wonder what President Jackson would say if he saw this today? He liked his beer; he just might approve of this.
