Frontier hero Daniel Boone conducts surveys and expeditions around Boonesborough, running into both friendly and hostile Indians, just before and during the Revolutionary War.
Israel Boone was one of seventy-two killed at the Battle of Blue Licks, one of the last battles of the Revolutionary War, on August 19, 1782. He was twenty-three. His father, Daniel, was there and saw his son killed. Coincidentally, Darby Hinton, who played Israel, was born on the 175th Anniversary of Israel's death, August 19, 1957.
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.
