David Crockett, A Frontiersman

Frontier settlers after the American Revolution, and even before, were generally suspicious of the powers wielded by the eastern establishment.  But life west of the Alleghenies was often treacherous and a relatively solitary existence.  Davy Crockett and other individuals through pluck and personality became legends in the historical records.  Here is a glimpse of the man and his world, mainly Tennessee and Kentucky.   Featured here: Crockett’s birthplace on the Nolichucky River, the Second Revival of 1801, bourbon whiskey, Tocqueville’s early impressions of the frontier, and more.  (Part 4 of the Ungovernable Frontier, Book 2 of the Pioneer Trail: Cowboys, Indians and Pilgrims). - best if viewed on larger screens like computer or TV (color-calibrated).
