Geocache Description:

The initial contents of this cache includes two Andrew Jackson Gold Dollars, one each, please, for the FTFs. The cache is located only a few feet off the trail, which may be difficult to find if there is snow on the ground.


Born two weeks after his father’s death, a prisoner of war at age 13, and an oprhan by age 14, Andrew Jackson grew up tough. In fact, he was so tough that his nickname was “Old Hickory.” Before becoming the seventh President of the United States, Jackson fought 13 duels in his life, mostly over gambling debts. On May 30, 1806, he shot and killed a man who attacked his wife’s honor. Before winning the duel, however, Jackson took a bullet to the chest which was lodged so close to his heart that the doctors felt it best to just leave it there. And you thought politics was rough nowadays?

This cache placement was approved by Brian Russart, Land Manger for the Milwaukee County Parks Department and complies with the Department’s new Geocaching guidelines.
