Knowing your American Heroes

 

DAVY CROCKETT (August 17, 1786 – March 6, 1836)

 

David "Davy" Crockett (August 17, 1786 – March 6, 1836) was a 19th ...

 

Was mid August of eighty six,
in northeastern Tennessee
The song does say he killed a bear
when he was only three!

A noted hunter with a style,
at eighteen learned to read.
Always giving a helping hand
with not one ounce of greed.

At eighteen he was married and
involved in politics.
People loved his oratory and
all of his antics.

He served three years in Congress,
and was well received.
On the fourth term was defeated,
truth is he felt relieved.

Disgusted now with politics,
he moved from Tennessee
Heading for the state of Texas,
was his destiny to be.

His name will be forever known,
In U.S. history.
With his coon skin cap and rifle
he fought for liberty.

There was one hundred and eighty nine,
on record it does show.
As one by one they lost their life
We know as~~~ the Alamo!
