This story is a glimpse into the character and integrity of the men who pioneered our nation. They were men of principle and as such they stand in stark contrast to the scheming and corruption of the unprincipled current group that are running the country.
Long before he earned fame and eternal glory at the Alamo, Davy Crocket was a member of Congress, serving his beloved Kentucky with pride and distinction. There are many heroic tales and sage stories associated with this remarkable pioneer. This one, called "Sockdologer," is from Edward S. Ellis's book, The Life of Colonel David Crockett, published in 1884.
