Tired of Trump-Clinton bitterness? Blame Henry Clay and Andrew Jackson

New exhibit at Ashland, the Henry Clay Estate, about Kentucky statesman’s three failed presidential campaign shows how they shaped modern campaign issues and styles. Clay’s bitter rivalry with Andrew Jackson played out in the elections of 1824, 1832 and 1844. A good time to see the exhibit is Sept. 24, when Ashland has its annual Living History day. In addition to craft shows and costumed re-enactors shooting muskets and cannon, festivities include a demonstration of hemp processing from Ashland’s first crop in more than a century.
