Unbelievable Stories About Davy Crockett

Unbelievably Macho Stories About Davy Crockett

Many of the stories about Davy Crockett (1786-1836) are wrapped up in myth and masculinity, much of which was propagated by Crockett's own hand. He wrote an autobiography, aptly titled A Narrative of the Life of David Crockett of the State of Tennessee, which detailed - and perhaps embellished - life on the American frontier.

Davy Crockett’s tales, some self-promoted in his autobiography, blend myth and masculinity, emphasizing frontier life and a bygone machismo. As a frontiersman, soldier, and politician, Crockett became a folk hero after his 1836 death, with his legacy growing into the 20th century.
