Crockett Connected Historic Sites and Histoic Travel with Links

Often movies and television reruns are what drive our understanding of history.  In the past theater, tall-tales and folk ballads were what created images and built legends. Some of which is good and forms powerful, quality ideas of people and places, but often it is a poor replication of the entirety of the person or the times.

Davy Crockett's life and legend are full of tall-tales, movies, television, dime-novel fiction, theater, folk ballads and a bit of truth.  He was an interesting man, a true hero with a larger-than-life persona born (1786) into a turbulent and wild world of the American Frontier.
