Davy Crockett and the Liberty Bell
I listened to the song Davy Crockett yesterday and it made us wonder about him. Daddy and I have done some research to find out more…
Wikipedia is a great place to find out information about people. It says that he was born in 1786 and died in 1836 which makes him 50 when he died. It also says he was known as “King of the Wild Frontier“.
He was Irish, English, Scottish, French and American!
He was a politician from Tennessee but died fighting at the Alamo. What’s the Alamo?
The Battle of the Alamo was part of a war in Texas called the Texas Revolution.
One thing I was interested in was the Liberty Bell. The Liberty Bell is a symbol of American Independence – and was cracked the first time it was rung! It was made in England. We have found from another website that he didn’t really mend the crack “but he did his best to preserve the Constitution.”
