Title: Davy Crockett

Description: Davy Crockett (David Stern Crockett; AKA: King of the Wild Frontier; 1786-1836), American politician, frontiersman and folk hero, at the Alamo, shown at left center, raising his arms to use his rifle as a club at charging Mexican troops, at the fall of the bastion on March 6, 1836; one highly disputed and undocumented claim (surfacing in 1955) insists that Crockett did not die in this manner, but, along with a few others, was captured, tortured and then executed on orders of Mexico's military dictator Santa Anna (Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna; 1794-1876), but whatever the method of death that met him, according to all reports, his courage remained intact; years earlier, on his way to Congress, Crockett greeted a crowd with the following bravado: "I am that same David Crockett fresh from the backwoods, half horse, half alligator, a little touched with the snapping turtle; I can wade the Mississippi, leap the Ohio, ride upon a streak of lightning, and slip without a scratch down a honey locust tree" it is more likely this extraordinary man died just the way an eye-witness, Ben, a former American slave who was the cook for one of Santa Anna's officers, found him killed in battle, near the barracks; Ben later stated that Crockett's body was "surrounded by no less than sixteen Mexican corpses with his knife buried in one of them" the inimitable Crockett was profiled by Charles K.
