Andrew Jackson, champion of the common, is a larger-than-life hero. He has been memorialized throughout American history. The idea of commemorating Jackson with a statue in the land of his birth was conceived by Perry Belle Hough of the Lancaster Historical Commission in 1962 when visiting Brookgreen Gardens to see Anna Hyatt Huntington's world famous sculptures.Fellow Historical Commissioner Nancy Crockett and her students wrote to Mrs. Huntington and asked her to sculpt the statue in honor of "the only South Carolinian to become President."
