DANIEL BOONE - A FEARLESS MAN SOMEHOW ALWAYS IN PERPETUAL MOTION
Daniel Boone was no Mythic figure in American history. He was real. This was one brave man. Careful study of his accomplishments, lead to the conclusion that Boone was an American figure whose deeds often bordered on Heroism that would be difficult to ever exaggerate. Daniel Boone was once partially Scalped in Battle with Native Americans - And as a result, in perhaps Boone's only deference to Vanity, tended to nearly always wear a wig or a hat.
