Did you ever wonder where Davy Crockett died? Read my book and find out.

Davy Crockett was born in Limestone,Tennessee on August,17,1787. I was so impressed that Davy killed a bear when he was 3 and he was even elected to congress in 1827!
Davy went to Texas in 1836 to help fight for its independence from Mexico.
Davy died at the Alamo in 1836.
In the 1950’s there was a Davy Crockett phase so big that teachers could not teach. I highly recommend this book because it is extremely interesting and very fast paced.

    Thanks for the great summary of Davy Crockett! Sounds like you learned a lot. I hope other kids enjoy it as much as you did.

      Hi Claire,

      The grunt work of adding book covers is all us — If I can find a copy of the book cover, I will post it alongside the review.

    Seriously?! He hunted a bear at age 3? That’s hard to understand.
