Trailing Daniel Boone
New for 2012 and just in time to help celebrate the centennial, Trailing Daniel Boone, shares the too-long-forgotten story of the remarkable effort undertaken by the Daughters of the American Revolution to mark Daniel Boone's Trail from 1912-1915. These stalwart women of the Progressive Era erected 45 bronze and cast iron markers across 400 miles from North Carolina, through Northeast Tennessee and Southwest Virginia, across the Cumberland Gap and into Kentucky to the site of Fort Boonesborough.
