Frontier hero Daniel Boone conducts surveys and expeditions around Boonesborough, running into both friendly and hostile Indians, just before and during the Revolutionary War.
Fess Parker portrayed Daniel Boone wearing a coonskin cap, a carryover from his portrayal of Davy Crockett. In actuality, Daniel Boone wore a beaver hat with flat brim.
This series gave rise to the urban legend that Daniel Boone and Davy Crockett were one and the same person. In fact, the producers had intended the show to be about Crockett, but Walt Disney would not sell them the rights, so they used the name Daniel Boone instead.
