Davy Crockett

Davy Crockett had many tall tales told about him. He was an excellent marksman and some people said that he could shoot a tick off a bear's nose one hundred yards away. Davy Crockett actually told most of the tales himself. Ever since he was a little boy, he would sit in his parents' inn and listen to the travelers tell their stories. Then he told them how he wrestled with bears and taught some animals how to dance. The real Davy Crockett was elected to the House of Representatives and sometimes he wore his coonskin cap and frontiersman outfit to meetings. Some say he walked down the Mississippi River on stilts and rode down Niagara Falls on the back of a crocodile. Davy Crockett didn't really do these things, but he fought against the Indians in the Creek War and defended the Alamo when the Spanish came. All the men in the Alamo were killed, including Davy Crockett, but we still remember him today for his bravery and courage. Copyright 2007 sponsor Inkjet T-Shirt Transfer Paper
