David Crockett PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

David Crockett free pdf Perhaps no other figure in American history is more shrouded in myth and legend than David ("Davy") Crockett, the Tennessee frontiersman whose death at the Alamo in 1836 insured his place in the Valhalla of American heroes.A gregarious, fun-loving man, Crockett was capable of spinning the tallest of tales, but the truth of his life was far more fascinating than the myth. His hunting and exploration adventures, his service as a soldier under Andrew Jackson in the Creek Indian War of 1813, his rise in politics to the United States Congress, his incessant search for "elbow room" that took him to Texas these were the real fabric of a heroic life.In writing of the historical Crockett, Groneman dispels the myths to discover the genuine hero beneath them. He writes at length of the defense of the Alamo, describes how Crockett's reputation and heroism have been tainted by revisionist historians, and presents new evidence that the Tennessean's heroics during the siege have, if anything, been understated."
