"Poets, historians, and orators have for a hundred years [written 1902] sung the praises of Daniel Boone as the typical backwoodsman of the trans-Alleghany region. Dsepite popular belief, he was not really the founder of Kentucky. Other explorers and hunters had been there long before him; he himself was pioleted through Cumberland Gap by John Finley; and his was not even the first permanent settlement in Kentucky, for Harrodsburg preceded it by nearly a year; his services in defense of the West, during nearly a hanf century of border warfare, were not comparable to those of George Rogers Clark or Benjamin Logan; as a commonwealth builder he was surpassed by several. Nevertheless, Boone's picturesque career possesses a romantic and even pathetic interest that can never fail to charm the student of history. He was great as a hunter, explorer, surveyor, and land-pilot -- probably he found few equals as a firleman; no man on the border knew Indians more skilfully than he; his life was filled to the brim with perilous adventures. He was not a man of affairs, he did not understand the art of money-getting, and he lost his lands because, although a surveyor, he was careless of legal forms of entry. He fleD before the advance of the civilization which he had ushered in: from Pennsylvania, wandering with his parents to North Carolina in search of broader lands; thence into Kentucky because the Carolina borders were crowded; then to the Kanawah Valley, for the reason that Kentucky was being settled too fast to suit his fancy; lastly to far-off Missouri, in order, as he said, to get 'elbow room.' Experiences similar to his have made misanthropes of many another man -- like Clark, for instance; but the temperament of this honest, silent, nature-loving man only mellowed with age; his closing years were radiant with the sunshine of serene content and the dimly appreciated consciousness of world-wide fame; and he died full of years, in heart a simple hunter to the last -- although he had also served with credit as magistrate, soldier, and legislator. At his death the Constitutional Convention of Missouri went into mourning for twenty days, and the State of Kentucky claimed his bones, and has erected over them a suitable monument."

"Born into a frontier community, Daniel Boone's entire life was spent amid similar surroundings, varying only in degree. With the sight of Indians he was from the first familiar. They frequently visited Oley and Exeter, and were cordially received by the Quakers. Beorge Boone's house was the scene of many a friendly gathering of the tribesmen. When Daniel was eight years of age, the celebrated Moravian missionary, Count zinzendorf, held a synod in a barn at Oley, a party of converted Delaware Indians, who preached in favor of Christianity, being the prinvipsl attractions at this meeting. Thus young Boone started life with an accurate knowledge of the American savage, which served him well during his later years of adventurous exploration and settlement-building.

DB's father had some excellent grazing range five or six miles north of the homestead, and each season DB and his mother would accompany the cattle there and remain from early spring until late autumn in a cabin, "far from any other human beings. Hard by, over a cool spring, was a dairy-house, in which the stout-armed mother made and kept her butter and cheese; while her favorite boy watched the herd as, led by their bell-carriers, they roamed at will through the woods, his duty at sunset being to drive they to the cabin for milking, and later to lock them for the night within the cow-pens, secure from wild animals or prowling cattle-thieves."

A true barbarian: "For the first two or three years -- his pastoral life having commenced at the tender age of ten -- his only weapon was a slender, smoothly shaved sapling, with a small bunch of gnarled roots at the end, in throwing which he grew so expert to kill birds and other small game. When reaching the dignity of a dozen years, his father bought him a rifle, with which he soon became an unerring marksman. But, although he henceforth provided wild meat enough for the family, his passion for hunting sometimes led him to neglect the cattle, which were allowed to stray far from home and pass the night in the deep forest."

DB was "quick, though bred a Quaker, to resent what he considered wrong treatment." In this he was like other members of his family, who were "sometimes rather too billegerent and self-willed," and had "occasionally to be dealt with by the meeting." (Quoting an unnamed family source.) His oldest sister Sarah was married to a non-Quaker and was "disowned" by the meeting; his oldest brother Israel also married a "worldling" and was disowned; and his father stood up for his children and was likewise expelled.

Draper: "Behold that young man, exhibiting such unusual firmness and energy of character, five feet eight inches in height, with broad chest and shoulders, his form gradually tapering downward to his extremities; his hair moderately black; blue eyes arched with yellowish eyebrows; his lips thin, with a mouth peculiraly wide; a countenance fair and ruddy, with a nose a little bordering on the Roman order. Such was Daniel Boone, now past twenty-one, presenting altogether a noble, manly, prepossessing appearance. . . . Rebecca Bryan, whose brow had now been fanned by the breezes of seventeen summers, was, like Rebecca of old, 'very fair to look upon,' with jet-black hair and eyes, complexion rather dark, and something over the common size of her sex; her whole demeanor expressive of her childlike artlessness, pleasing in her address, and unaffectedly kind in all her deportment. Never was there a more gentle, affectionate, forbearing creature than this same fair youthful bride of the Yadkin." (quoted in THWAITES:26) REBECCABRYANB

Early married life: farming, some blacksmith work, and probably "took a hand at the loom, as had his father and grandfather before him." Drove his wagon in the caravans which each autumn found their way from the Yadkin to the Atlantic cities where he would sell his furs. Animals were not yet driven to market. Brought back essentials: salt, iron, cloth, and a few manufactured goods.

Cherokee War (1759) Cherokees raided the Yadkin and Catawba Valleys -- ruined crops, burned farmhouses, murders; many borderers carried off as prisoners into Indian country -- slavery or torture. Catawbas remained friendly. Most families either went to Fort Dobbs, or small neighborhood blockhouses, or fled to the coast -- as did the Boones -- to Culpepper Co, VA. CHEROKEEWAR

"It is the time-honored custom of historians of the frontier to consider Indians as all wrong and whites as all right; and that, of course, was the opinion f the borderers themselves -- of Daniel Boone and all the men of his day. But we are now far enough removed from these events, and the fierce passions they engendered, to see them more clearly. The Indian was a savage and fought like a savage -- cruel, bloodthirsty, unrelenting, treacherous, seldom a respecter of childhood, of age, or of women. But one can not read closely the chronicles of border warfare without discovering that civilized men at time could, in fighting savages, descend quite as low in the scale as they, in bolldthirstiness and treachery. Some of the most atrocious acts in the pioneer history of Kentucky and the Middle West were performed by whites; and some of the most Christianlike deeds -- there were many such on both sides -- were those of painted savages." The frontiersman "was a diamond in the rough, and not accustomed to nice ethical distinctions. To his mind the Indian was an inferior being, if not a child of Satan; he was not making the best use of the soil; his customs and habits of thought were such as to repel the British mind, however much they may have attracted the French. The tribesmen, whom the pioneer could not and would not understand stood in his way, hence must be made to go or to die in his tracks. When the savage, quick to resentment, struck back, the turbulent passions of the overbearing white were aroused, and with compound interest he repaid the blow. Upon the theory that the devil must be fought with fire, the borderer not seldom adopted methods of reprisal that outdid the savage in brutality. The red man fighting, after his own wild standards, for all that he held most dear, and the white man, who brooks no opposition from an inferior race, hitting back with a fury sometimes increased by fear -- such, in brief, is the blood-stained history of the American border."

DB and other frontiersmen looked to the forests for their cash crop -- furs. "Naturally, this wandering, adventurous life, spiced with excitement in many forms, strongly appealed to the rough, hardy borderers, and unfitted them for other occupations. Under such conditions farming methods were not likely to improve, nor the arts of civilization to prosper; for the hunter not only best loved the wilderness, but settlement narrowed his hunting-grounds. Thus it was that the frontiersman of the Daniel Boon type, Indian hater as he was, had at heart much the same interests as the savage whom he was seeking to supplant. It was simply a question as to which hunter, red or white, should occupy the forest; to neither was settlement welcome." (THWAITES:58-59) INDIANNESS INDIANHATING WILDERLIEBE

Dissatisfied with this location he moved five miles farther up the river and about half a mile up Beaver Creek.

DB with William Hill, possibly his bro Squire, crossed the mountains through the Holston and Clinch valleys, and reached the head waters of the West Fork of Big Sandy. Followed this river downstream, searching for the Ohio. Caught in a snow storm, they camped at a salt lick for the winter, where they killed game that came to lick the brackish soil. Were not really aware that they were in Kentucky -- very hilly and brush covered country, dissastified, returned in spring. (THWAITES:69-70)

1769 Boone and his companions found the well-worn trail of other hunters. Other hunting parties at the same time as KENTUCKEXPLORE2: 1) Hancock and Richard Taylor, Abraham Hempinstall, and ? Barbour started from Orange Co., VA. Descended from Pittsburg in a boat, explored KY, into AK where they camped and hunted during the following winter. Home via Florida. 2) 20 or more men from New River region set out in 6/69 piloted by Uriah Stone; entered KY by way of Cumberland Gap; had experiences quite similar to Boone et al. Found herds of buffalo at KY salt licks; were also victims of the Cherokees, who plundered their camps, left them with guns and ammo and ordered them to leave the country. Half returned while the others wandered into Tennessee and as far as the Ozarks, finally returning through GA and the Carolinas. 3) John McCulloch with a white servant and black slave. Visited site of Terre Haute, IN, went by canoe to Natchez and New Orleans, reached Philly by sea. 4) Long Hunters: 40 of the most noted and successful hunters of New River and Holston Valley in summer of 1770 to hunt and trap to the west of Cumberland mts. Leadership of Joseph Drake and Henry Skaggs, included several of Stone's party (see above). Set out in autumn. Through Cumberland Gap into KY. Visited best licks. In Feb. were robbed by Cherokee. Carved on tree: "Fifteen hundred skins gone to runiation!" to which was appended the initials of each member of the party. A series of subsequent disasters: 2 men carried off by Indians and never seen again, others fled for home. Others continued hunt on Green and Cumberland rivers. Ran into Boone, singing on his back.

Daniel Boone found singing alone by the Long Hunters: One of the parties into which the band was divided were going into camp for the night when they heard a strange noise from a considerable distance in the forest. The leader, Caspar Mausker, commanded silence, and crept cautiously from tree to tree in the direction of the sound. He found "a man bare-headed, stretched flat upon his back on a deerskin spread on the ground, singing merrily at the top of his voice!" [no source cited] DB was awaiting Squire's belated return to camp, amusing himself. "Like most woodsmen of his day and ours, Boone was found of singing, in his rude way, as well as of relating tales of stirring adventure. In such manner were many hours whiled away around the camp-fires of wilderness hunters." (THWAITES:93-94)

The methods used were of the crudest sort. A speculator who "ran out" a hundred thousand acres might, without knowing it, include in his domain a half-dozen claims previously surveyed by modest settlers who wanted by a hundred acres each. This overlapping, conscious or unconscious, caused thousands of lawsuits. "And even to-day [1902] in Kentucky there are lands whose ownership is actually unknown, which pay no taxes and support only squatters who can not be turned out -- possibly some of it, lying between patented tracts, by chance has never been entered at all. Nobody can now say." (THWAITES:120)

Boone came with his family and twenty young men ( "twenty-one guns"); Squire and his family soon followed; four Bryans, their brothers-in-law, came with thirty men from the Yadkin. People like these had been attracted by Henderson's advertisements in VA newspapers: "Any person who will settle on and inhabit the same before the first day of June, 1776, shall have the privilege of taking up and surveying for himself five hundred acres, and for each tithable person he may carry with him and settle there, two hundred and fifty acres, on the payment of fifty shillings sterling per hundred, subject to a yearly quit-rent of two shillings, like money, to commence in the year 1780."

In addition to those coming over the Cumberland Gap, many were coming down the Ohio in the mid-1770s. These were interested chiefly in the crown lands north of the Kentucky River. "Through these they ranged at wsill, building rude pens, half-faced cabins, and log huts, as convenience dictated, and planting small crops of corn in order to preempt their claims." Many of these would return with many claims, hoping to sell them to gulable actual settlers. These claim speculators were called "cabiners." John Todd of Harrodsburg wrote to a friend: "I am afraid to lose sight of my house lest some invader should take possession." (THWAITES:130-131, no source cited]

"At both stations [also Harrodsburg] the women soon became the equal of the men, fearlessly taking turns at the port-holes, from which little puffs of white smoke would follow the sharp rifle-cracks whenever a savage head revealed itself from behind bush or tree. When not on duty as marksmen, women were melting their pewter plates into bullets, loading the rifles and handling them to the men, caring for the wounded, and cooking whatever food might be obtainable."

With the Shawnee who captured Boone and his party at the salt-making were James and George Girty as well as DB's captors of eight years before "who laughed heartily at again having him in their clutches." The Indians called him "brother" -- "for they always greatly enjoyed such exhibitions of mock civility and friendship." "Although generally a silent man of action, [Boone] appears to have been a plausible talker when dealing with red men." Pompey acted as translator in all these negotiations. (THWAITES:148, 149, 151)

BUSINESSMAN "A kindly, simple-hearted, modest, silent man, he had lived so long by himself alone in the woods that he was ill fitted to cope with the horde of speculators and other self-seekers who were now despoiling the old hunting-grounds to which Finley had piloted him only fifteen years before. Of great use to the frontier settlements as explorer, hunter, piolot, land-seeker, surveyor, Indian fighter, and sheriff -- and, indeed, as magistrate and legislator so long as Kentucky was a community of riflemen -- he had small capacity for the economic and political sides of commonwealth-building. For this reason we find him hereafter, although still in middle life, taking but slight part in the making of Kentucky; none the less did his career continue to be adventurous, picturesque, and in a measure typical of the rapidly expanding West."

Spain controlled the Mississippi. Eastern men in Congress failed to realize the special needs of the "overmountain" men. Some westerners favored a filibustering expedition against the Spanish, and when this did not appear practical (1788) favored an alliance with Spain, seperating off the west from the east. Later others proposed that Kentucky become an independent state. There were agents of Spain at work in much of this. Westerners later found it difficult to explain their conduct. Bribes were offered. Spain also offered large land grants to priminent American frontiersmen -- "of which . . . Daniel Boone, in his days of discontent, took advantage, as did also a few other Kentucky pioneers."

late 1780s by one who knew him intimately at that time [unidentified, no citation]: "His large head, full chest, square shoulders, and stout form are still impressed upon my mind. He was (I think) about five feet ten inches in height, and his weight say 175. He was solid in mind as well as in body, never frivolous, thoughtless, or agitated; but was always quiet, meditative, and impressive, unpretentious, kind, and friendly in his manner. He cam very much up to the idea we have of the old Grecian philosophers -- particularly Diogenes." (THWAITES:212-13)

Although he could write only with difficulty, and couldn't spell worth a damn, by his neighbors he was nearly always considered a well-educated man, and often chosed for office because he was one of the few who could make records. "In a primitive community like the Femme Osage, Boone may well have ranked as a man of some education; and certainly he wrote a bold, free hand, showing much practise with the pen, although we have seen that his spelling and grammar might have been improved."

When Spanish turned government over to the Americans, Charles Dehault Delassus, the Spanish lieutenant-governor of Upper Louisiana, resident at St. Louis (he was French), delivered to the American commissioner a detailed report on the personality of his subordinates, and this was his assessment of Boone the Syndic: "Mr. Boone, a respectable old man, just and impartial, he has already, since I appointed him, offered his resignation owing to his infirmities -- believing I know his probity, I have induced him to remain, in view of my confidence in him, for the public good."

Timothy Flint: "He was five feet ten inches in height, of a very erect, clean-limbed, and athletic form -- admirably fitted in structure, muscle, temperament, and habit for the endurance of the labors, changes, and sufferings he underwent. He had what phrenologists would have considered a model head -- with a forehead peculiarly high, noble, and bold -- thin and compressed lips -- a mild, clear, blue eye -- a large and prominent chin, and a general expression of countenance in which fearlessness and courage sat enthroned, and which told the beholder at a glance what he had been and was formed to be. . . . Never was old age more green, or gray hairs more graceful. His high, calm, bold forehead seemed converted by years into iron." (THWAITES:236)

Capt. William Russell to Col. William Preston, 6/26/1774: <I have Engaged to start Immediately, on the occasion, two of the best Hands I could think of Danl. Boone, and Michl. Stoner; who have Engaged to search the Country, as low as the falls, and to return by way of Gaspers Lick, on Cumberland, and thro' Cumberland Gap: so that by the assiduity of these Men, if it is not too late, I hope the Gentlemen will be apprised of the eminent Danger they are Daily in.> Thwaites2:50-51

Col. William Christian to Col. William Preston, 7/9/1774: <Boone has been gone 10 or 12 days, in search of the surveyors. I had some thought of sending Drake alone, and engaging to give the pay of two Scouts, he is very willing to go. but I conclude to stop him about 10 or 12 days more, indeed he must wait to be a witness against Crabtree.> Thwaites2:78

Col. William Christian to Col. William Preston, 7/12/1774: <When I gott here [Russell's fort], I found that Boon & Stoner had set off Yesteerday two Weeks, in search of the Surveyors: They were to go down the Kantucky, to Your salt Lick; from thence across the Country to the Falls of Ohio; & from there home by way of Gaspers Lick, on Cumberland River. If they find Them on the Kantucky, they will be back in a few Days; if not 'till they go to the Falls, it will probably be ten Days from this Time before they return. Captain Russell thinks they have passed the Falls some Days ago, as Boone would loose no Time, if he could not find the People: this makes Me think it unnecessary to send Drake, as I before proposed, until Boone's Rout is known> Thwaites2:81

Capt. William Russell to Col. William Preston, 7/13/1774: <I am in hopes, from this time, in about two, or three Weeks Mr. Boone will produce, the Gentn. surveyors here, as I can't believe they are all Kill'd: Boone has Instructions to take different routs, till he comes to the Falls of Ohio, and if no discovery there, to return Home thro' Cumberland Gap, which will give them opportunity to discover, if they are about the upper Entrys on Salt Lick River [Licking river], or have Advanced towards Cumb: River, to make what few surveys, were to be there: in which Tower (if they are alive) it is indisputable, but Boone must find them.> Thwaites2:88-89

If Mr. Drake gets a birth down there & does not immediately return to me, & assist according to your instructions, I may let Boone join me and try. Capt. Bledsoe says Boone has more interest [influence] than any man now disengaged; & you know what Boone has done for me by your kind directions, for which reason I love the man. But yet do as you think proper in every thing respecting me.> Thwaites2:168

Maj. Arthur Campbell to Col.William Preston, 8/28/1774: <Capt. Floyd seems uneasy at the way Drake has used him as he now plainly discovers, that he was expecting to be appointed to a separate command. For this reason and to relieve Mr. Floyds anxiety I wrote pressingly to Mr. Boon to raise men with all expedition to join Capt. Floyd; and I did not doubt but you would do everything in your power to encourage him. And what induced me particularly to apply to Mr. Boon was seeing his Journal last Night, and a Leter to Capt. Russell wherein he professes a great desire to go on the Expedition, & I am well informed he is a very popular Officer where he is known. So I hope Capt. Floyd will still succeed as I have good reason to believe Mr. Boon will get all inCapt. Looneys Company that intended to go with Bledsoe, and perhaps you can asist a Little out of Waggoners recruits as I have heard to day he is likely to get some Men. I have been informed that Mr. Boon tract a small party of Indians from Cumberland Gap, to near the Settlement, upon this intelligence I wrote pressingly to Capt. Thompson to have a contant look out and to urge the Spys strictly to do their duty.> Thwaites2:171

Maj. Arthur Campbell to Col.

The Express came of[f] next morning early. Mr. Boone was preparing to go in search of the Enemy. Mr. Boone also informs me that the Indians has been frequently about Blackmores, since the Negroes was taken; And Capt. Looney has so few Men that he cannot venture to go in pursuit of them, having only eleven Men. . . . Mr. Boone has sent me the War Club that was left it is difirent from that left at Blackmores; Mr. Boone thinks it is the Cherokees that is now annoying us, I rather believe it is some of Major M.Donalds desperate fugitives that has taken refuge some where on the Ohio [to] the back of us; and would willingly deceive us into a belief that it is the Cherokees, that they may succeed that way to create a misunderstanding between us and the old Chiefs.> Thwaites2:220-21

Capt. Daniel Smith to Col. William Preston, 10/13/1774: <I am this far [Castle-Woods] on my return from the lower Settlement to the head of the river; Mr. Boon can inform you of the bad success we've had after the inhuman savages, -- the murders they've committed, and the mortification we've suffer'd of putting horses into a Pen adjoining to the fort, for the Indians to taked away, and whose trace we could by no means discover. I shall be as expeditious as possible in getting to the head of the River lest they should invade those parts that are particularly under my care. <Whilst I was in the lower settlement I was shown a paper signed by many of the inhabitants representing their situation to be dangerous because they've been so irregularly supply'd with the number of men alloted to the district; and also requesting you [to] appoint Mr. Boon to be a Captain, and to take charge of these lower forts, that so he may be at liberty to act without orders from Holston captains who by their frequent absence leave the inhabitants sometimes in disorder. Instead of signing this paper I chose to speak my sentiments to you concerning Mr. Boon and the paper which I suppose he will shew you. As to the paper I believe it contains the sense og the majority of the inhabitants in this settlement. Mr. Boon is an excellent woodsman. If that only would qualify him for the Office no man would be more proper. I do not know of any Objection that could be made to his character which would make you think him an improper person for that office. There may be possibly be [sic] some impropriety in it Because of Capt. Russell when he returns, but of this you are much the best judge.> Thwaites2:248-49

Maj. Arthur Campbell to Col. William Preston, 10/13/1774: <As Mr. Boon is to be the Bearer herof he can inform you particularly of the News this Way. You will see by the inclosed your Old acquaintance Wm. Poage wants a Commission. he now acts as Serjeant at Fort Preston I believe he is a fit Man enough on many accounts for to be an officer; which I would be glad you could gratify him with if it don't interfere with others already appointed, which I am afraid it will, as either Vance or Capt. Looneys Ensign is intended for that Station, I wish Mr. Boons application or rather ye. people for him may not have a similar tendency. I think it is men, and not particular Officers, they stand in mowst need of. This much I am informed that it was not proposed by Mr. Boon for to Petition you asf they do; But it atose from a notion that a distant Officer would not be so particularly interested for their safety as he who lives among them. And some disgust at Capt. Looney for being away at home the time of the late alarm, which he pleads in excuse that he wanted to see to the safety of his own Family, when Roberts was Killed in his Neighbourhood.> Thwaites2:250
