Daniel Boone Day

June 7th sees a special day close to my heart honored. I can only imagine how it would have been in the 1700 and 1800's to walk the forests of the blue grass state. Daniel Boone who was born November 2, 1734 explored the valleys and forests of kentucky starting on June 7 1769. The village of Boonesborough Kentucky was formed by Boone. This village was one of the first American settlements west of the Appalachians. 

Daniel Boone was an American pioneer, frontiersman and folk hero. He helped create a route that more than 200,000 European people would use to migrate the states of Kentucky and Virginia. 
Daniel Boone and his wife Rebecca Bryan would live in a cabin on his fathers farm and raise ten children together. Earlier in life Boone had been captured by the Shawnee warriors during the revolutionary war in 1778. The Indians adopted him into their tribe and taught him many great lessons.
