Political Cesspool On Southern Hero, Davy Crockett

16 May

I was looking up information on Davy Crockett for a future family trip and came across this video from an old Political Cesspool show discussing Davy.

    We love Mr. Crockett. My youngest son’s name is Crockett.

    Also, from “Davy Crockett’s Own Story” (Citadel Press, NY, pg. 22,23:

    “An old Dutchman by name of Jacob Siler—-made a stop at my father’s house. He had a large stock of cattle that he was carrying with him.—–He hired me to the old Dutchman to go the four hundred miles on foot, with a perfect stranger that I had never seen until the evening before. I set out with a heavy heart, it is true, but I went ahead until we arrived at a place, which was three miles from what is called Natural Bridge, and made a stop at the house of Mr. Hartley, who was father-in-law to Mr. Siler, who had hired me. My Dutch master was very kind to me, and gave me five or six dollars, being pleased, as he said, with my services.”

    And that was us.—My mother’s people 🙂 We were actually German…

      I grew up learning about him and we are trying to make sure our kids do too. We own that same book. I was taken by how obviously concerned he was to never exaggerate or lie. Such honesty that we lack now-a-days.

      I think that it is great that you chose a strong name for your son. We’ve done the same thing and named several of our children after strong Southerners. I think it is important to honor our heritage, very literally in your case. I believe it gives the kids a natural connection to history.
