Davy Crockett used to say: make sure, that you are right and move on. He was called "a congressman in a raccoon's skin”, and he himself provided the crowds, that it is so ugly, that at the sight of his smile, the raccoon comes down from the tree.
Crockett, legendary american hero, was born in the year 1786 and served under Andrew Jackson as a scout in the War Against the Creek Indians. He was later elected to the US Congress from Tennessee. He was a congressman for three terms. Having lost his seat in Congress, Crockett fought the Battle of the Alamo, and was one of the few who survived the battle for that alone, by a year 1836 get shot by Santa Ana.
Davy Crockett's legend was largely created by himself. He loved repeating extraordinary stories about himself, for example this one, that he had shot one hundred and five bears in eight months. He enjoyed it, that he has a reputation for being a humorous inhabitant of the forest with natural intelligence and great courage. Crockett owes a raccoon leather hat, a permanent part of the American costume, which is taken out from time to time and shows off in public.
