Icon81 Andrew Jackson's tomb says "I killed the bank"

Comment: http://wideeyecinema.com/?p=120

In this video in the 25-27 minutes of it there is fact put forth that on
the tomb of Andrew Jackson it says "I killed the bank", meaning that he
ended central banking in his presidency which he as a matter of fact did.
I have been to the hermitage and I looked through my photos and I did not
find any hint that it says that on his tomb. I didn't know to look for it
at the time or I would have tried harder. It is fenced in so I cannot
verify whether or not it is true. Sometimes people cite things that are
not true and because no one steps up and asks for proof it becomes
accepted as truth.

nitpick - thread title says "Jefferson"; OP says "Andrew Jackson". I'm assuming Jackson.

You're right. I couldn't bring myself to sit through a 47-minute tinfoil hat video on the evils of the Federal Reserve.
