Episode: Andrew Jackson's Mouth
Our contributor has an interesting object: a mouth and chin carved out of wood. Articles and a letter at the bottom of the box say this mouth was part of a figurehead of President Andrew Jackson affixed to the bow of U.S.S. Constitution until protestors vandalized the carving in the 1830's. Could this wooden mouth have once adorned U.S.S. Constitution?
