This video documentary take you back in time to the battleground that was the Kentucky frontier; it traces the life of Daniel Boone from his birth near Reading, Pennsylvania in 1734, through his years in Kentucky and to his death in St. Charles County, Missouri in 1820. Against the backdrop of the American Revolution, Daniel Boone explores an ordinary man living in extraordinary times who was destined to settle and defend the beautiful, but often fiercely unforgiving, wilderness of Kentucky that became known as "the dark and bloody ground".

They never mention that in the 1700s Kentucky , Pennsylvania and Ohio were giant chestnut forests thanks to hundreds of years of Indian settlement now abandoned after disease wiped out most the population. 3/4 of the year you could forage enough chestnuts to live on anywhere. And millions of squirrels too. It was impossible to starve in the frontier. The chestnut forests lasted into the mid/late 1800s until a chestnut blight killed almost all the chestnut trees in the country.

 

Most of this is filmed at the Wilderness Road State park in Lee County Virginia.

Boone joined a militia. Now they think you are anti-American if you join a militia. Sad, but true. Government does not like anything they cannot control. Volunteers are held by no laws as militia and cannot be ordered by the US military or government since they are not signed up with them. The government could start a dod program with US malitias to train them for rescue work, for traffic control, help available to disaster relief and as military police for such incidents. These are American patriots who want to be actively involved in helping the national good when given the chance. See them as an available resource not a problem.
