NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – Tennessee lawmakers are unveiling a bust of David Crockett at the state Capitol. Crockett, who was
famous as “the king of the wild frontier,” fought in the Indian wars from 1813 to 1815, was elected to the Tennessee Legislature in
1821 and to Congress in 1827. But Crockett became a foe of President Andrew Jackson, a fellow Tennessean, and decided to go to
Texas where he died during the Mexican siege of the Alamo in 1836.
