Abstract:

Most people think that Davy Crockett was 2born on a mountaintop in Tennessee.3 The reality is that Crockett was never called 2Davy3he was always known as David Crockett. His birthplace near Greeneville, Tennessee, is actually alongside Limestone Creek and the Nolichucky River, which can hardly be described as a mountaintop. In this book, which is part biography, part travel guide, the reader will learn these and other interesting facts about Crocketts life. This volume guides you to the exact locations where Crockett spent important moments in his life. Although many of these eventsfrom his birth to the courting of his two wives to his political careeroccurred in Tennessee, he spent large chunks of his life in other states. Because of his role at the Alamo, there are several Crockett sites in Texas. As a young man, Crockett ran away from home and worked throughout Virginia and Maryland. During the Creek War, he joined the militia that traveled throughout Alabama and into parts of Florida and Georgia. Whether using this book as an armchair reader or as a traveler following in Crocketts footsteps, the reader will discover new insights into the life of one of Americas original heroes. - Publisher.
