Davy Crockett was a person/legend ranking among the highest recognized american heroes. As many know,
Davy has been in many children's stories, plays, films, songs, and novels.
His favorite moto when he was living was, "Be
always sure you are right, and then go ahead."
Davy's personage was of a Hercules of the forest.
He was also know as a warrior and a person who fought heartily for liberty. He was a Jacksonian Republican even though he
was with the Whiggs every so often.
Some of the people he came upon were Mike Fink
when he was going down the Ohio River to New Orleans to deliver some Beaver pelts. He also encountered George Russell which
has been his partner thoughout his various adventures.
Although Davy was a combatant in various wars,
he orinally thought that killing others was a waste of time. The event that changed his mind about warring was an attack from
the Creek Indians. This event was the begining point of all his volunteer work concerning the wars that he was part of.
In September 24, 1813 was the eighteenth man to
enlist for the Srcond Regiment of Tennesse Volunteer Mounted Riflemen. When he was enlisted, Davy was a part-time scout and
was more different than those actually in the war. By being so different and focusing more on food than on the war itself
he missed many main events at that time.
His final battle was at the Alamo against the
Mexican military leader, Antonio de Santa Ana. He later died in battle.
