Davy Crockett was a US soldier, politician, frontiersman, and folk hero who was born in Tennessee in 1786. He joined the state militia in 1813 to serve in the Creek War, and soon after he fought in the War of 1812. Crockett also served as a member of the US House of Representatives for 6 years, where he clashed often with president Andrew Jackson and voted against the Indian Removal Act. He later moved to Texas after his political career ended and joined the Texas Revolution. In 1836, Davy Crockett died at the Battle of the Alamo in San Antonio, Texas.

Walt Disney decided to pay respect to the folk hero by producing a television series in the 1950s. The series was well-liked by children and made Crockett's coonskin cap a popular item along with other frontier-themed toys.
