This report of the "attack on Boone" by Archibald Henderson at the dedication of the Boonesborough Monument in 10/1936: Henderson dubbed Boone's claims in Filson's book "arrogant and extravagant," <and the North Carolina speaker entered the counter-claim that Col. Richard Henderson, head of the Transylvania Company, was the real "empire buildre" of the West. Boone he classified with hunters and dumb and reckless Indian fighters.> Tom Wallace's counter-attack: "When capitalists hire brains, they ought to be congratulated." <This is not the first time Dr. Henderson has taken occasion to belittle Boone's record. . . . Eight years ago the Boone Family Association conducted a pilgrimage from the Boone cabin on the Yadkin in North Carolina over the Wilderness Road to Boonesborough, where Dr. Henderson as guest speaker declared that Boone was financially indebted to Colonel Henderson to such an extent that the had to mark out the Wilderness Road and erect the fort at Boonesborough to discharge his obligations.> <Such attacks will get nowhere with Kentuckians. The place Daniel Boone occupies in their hearts is too secure.> BOONE BULLETIN 2 no. 10-11 (1934-39):201, available in Kentucky Historical Society.
