Daniel Boone

One hundred ninety nine years ago On September 26, 1820 the great pioneering frontiersman Daniel Boone died quietly in his sleep at his son’s home near present-day Defiance, Missouri. He was 85.

He was an American pioneer, explorer, woodsman, and frontiersman whose frontier exploits made him one of the first folk heroes of the United States. He was also a businessman, soldier, and politician who represented three different counties in the Virginia General Assembly following the American Revolutionary War. Boone is most famous for his exploration and settlement of what is now Kentucky. He was not at the battle of the Alamo, which happened during 1836.
