When I heard that there was a statue dedicated to Davy Crockett in Ozona, TX, my inner 9 year old boy started freaking out. Because like most kids from the 50's, I grew up watching this frontier hero lead epic Disney adventures on our black and white tv. And I dreamed of wearing a coon skin hat while singing his very catchy theme song...
Born on a mountain top in Tennessee,
Greenest state in the land of the free.
Raised in the woods so's he knew every tree,
Killed him a bear when he was only three.
Davy, Davy Crockett, King of the Wild Frontier.
