I wonder what my Mom did with my old coonskin cap.............

Davy Crockett was born August 17, 1786.  The frontiersman,
soldier, Congressman, and folk hero died at the Alamo in 1836.

Fess Parker, who brought Davy to life, was born August 16,
1924.  He died this past March.

  1. When I lived in upper East Tennessee I visited Davy Crockett's birthplace and was dismayed to find that it in a valley by a creek. It's a pretty little place but not "born on a mountaintop".
