Legends about Davy Crockett abound in American folklore, but they all spring from the life of a very real Colonel David Crockett. A skilled frontiersman and engaging storyteller, he developed into a maverick politician during the time he was a member of the US House of Representatives from Tennessee. Disgusted with politics he came to Texas, where he died at the Battle of the Alamo. Afterward, legends about his skills as an outdoorsman and stories of his mythic death continued to grow. Here is the real story of the man who became a legend.
