#3. Daniel Boone
by Barbara J. Feldman
Daniel Boone Printable (** for premium members only)
American trailblazer Daniel Boone (1734 – 1820) explored the Appalachian mountains, the area now known as Kentucky, and opened up a westward trail for thousands of settlers that followed him into what is now called Missouri. Although television portrayed Boone in a coonskin cap, it is more likely that he wore a black felt hat, and had a pigtail of his own hair (not of a racoon.) Learn more about the facts and myths surrounding this famous pioneer at the following sites.
Archiving Early America: The Adventures of Col. Daniel Boon
Boone’s autobiography “The Adventures of Col. Daniel Boon” was first published on his fiftieth birthday. It tells of his adventures in the Kentucky wilderness from May, 1769 to October,1782,
including “his capture by the Shawnee Indians, his adoption by Chief Black Fish as his son, and his daring escape on foot through the forests covering 160 miles in 4 days.” Scroll down to the bottom of this introduction page for links to the book chapters..
Berks Web: Daniel Boone
“The name Daniel Boone will forever be synonymous with the saga of the American frontier. Born and raised in Pennsylvania, Boone was the inveterate wayfarer who achieved lasting fame guiding land-hungry settlers to the Kentucky frontier and fighting to defend them against Indian attack.” This single-page biography has an interesting set of links at the bottom of the page that point to articles from the Historical Society of Berks County, Pennsylvania. Best bets for additional exploration are Early Years of Daniel Boone, Story of Benjamin Franklin’s Mortgage on the Daniel Boone Farm, and Daniel and Squire Boone.
Daniel Boone: The Extraordinary Life of a Common Man
Margy Miles is a Boone descendant and a “lifelong fan of the Pioneer of Kentucky.” She has created a very complete Boone site for the McCreary Pioneers Cemetery Preservation Society of Kentucky that focuses on genealogy, but has plenty of good stuff for school reports. My favorite pages are A Little About Boone, Marriage, and Life Timeline. For those doing further research, her Links page is excellent.
