Colonel David Stern Crockett was a celebrated nineteenth-century American folk hero, frontiersman, soldier and politician. He represented Tennessee in the U.S. House of Representatives, served in the Texas Revolution and died a hero’s death in the Alamo. Legends about his skills as an outdoorsman, a maverick statesman and a warrior continued to grow, and today, he is considered an integral part of American folklore.
