Daniel Boone's Kentucky

Frankfort, Kentucky

From The New Nation Grows, Volume Two:

1769--Daniel Boone Discovers A paradise -- "Even before the Revolution restless men in the colonies began to cross the Alleghenies, sometimes only to hunt, sometimes to clear little farms on virgin land that could be had for the taking. Though not the first to explore the western country, Daniel Boone has come to stand for the many men of his kind whose daring, skill in woodcraft, and willingness to endure hardship blazed trails for the millions of settlers who followed them."
