Comments  Summary  Contents  Author Notes

Summary: Davy Crockett grew to be a legend on America's colonial frontier when violence and danger were everywhere. He was a scout and a soldier, an explorer and a homesteader, and even a politician, serving in the United States House of Representatives. But it wasn't until after his death during the fall of the Alamo in San Antonio, Texas, that he became a legend of mythic proportions. Today he symbolizes the spirit of those pioneers who settled the untamed lands of a young country and is recognized as a man who fought for the common people, defining for their time what it meant to be an American.
