    Davy Crockett lived from 1786 to 1836 when he died at The Alamo for Texas Independence from Mexico. It is signed but I cannot make out the signature and dated “23” for 1823. Anything antique connected to Davy Crockett is extremely rare and highly collectable. Archival framing with UV acrylic.
    David Crockett (August 17, 1786 – March 6, 1836) was an American folk hero, frontiersman, soldier, and politician. He is commonly referred to in popular culture by the epithet “King of the Wild Frontier". He represented Tennessee in the U.S. House of Representatives and served in the Texas Revolution.
    Crockett grew up in East Tennessee, where he gained a reputation for hunting and storytelling. He was made a colonel in the militia of Lawrence County, Tennessee and was elected to the Tennessee state legislature in 1821. In 1827, he was elected to the U.S. Congress where he vehemently opposed many of the policies of President Andrew Jackson, especially the Indian Removal Act. Crockett's opposition to Jackson's policies led to his defeat in the 1831 elections. He was re-elected in 1833, then narrowly lost in 1835, prompting his angry departure to Texas (then the Mexican state of Tejas) shortly thereafter. In early 1836, he took part in the Texas Revolution and was likely executed at the Battle of the Alamo after being captured by the Mexican Army.[2][3][4]
    Crockett became famous during his lifetime for larger-than-life exploits popularized by stage plays and almanacs. After his death, he continued to be credited with acts of mythical proportion. These led in the 20th century to television and film portrayals, and he became one of the best-known American folk heroes.[5][6]
    In 1823, he ran against Andrew Jackson's nephew-in-law William Edward Butler[100] and won a seat in the General Assembly representing the counties of Carroll, Humphreys, Perry, Henderson and Madison.[101] He served in the first session, which ran from September through the end of November 1823, and in the second session that ran September through the end of November 1824, championing the rights of the impoverished farmers.[102] During Andrew Jackson's election to the United States Senate in 1823, Crockett backed his opponent John Williams.[103]
