 The Drawing of the actual Kentucky Survey is fully illustrated and was accomplished by Daniel Boone himself.  He wrote, in part, " survaid 487 acres of land......Daniel Boone D.  S.".  Daniel Boone fought during the Revolutionary war, then with great difficulty worked his way into Kentucky as one of the earliest Trailblazers.  Eventually Boone became a Legislator, Sheriff, and Official Surveyor.

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.
