If you want to discover the captivating history of Davy Crockett, then keep reading...
If, as historian Thomas Carlyle said, the history of the world is but the biography of great men, then it is also true that the story of the great men is a parable of their times, places, and generational aspirations. The life of Davy Crockett, one of the most cherished and remembered American frontiersmen, is an accurate representation of the United States as it stretched westward to become one of the largest nations in the world.
Yet David Crockett was not a mythical character but a very real person. Such was his mark in the process of westward expansion that, among hundreds of other frontiersmen, only he got the informal title of "King of the Wild Frontier" for posterity.
What is undeniable is that Davy Crockett was always faithful to his convictions, as he was guided by a deep commitment to justice, and above all, he was someone who always did what he thought was right, even running to aid his strongest political enemy, President Andrew Jackson, when someone tried to assassinate him. And that philosophy of life-doing the right thing no matter what-is much more than can be said of many others of his generation.
