DC TRIP: I Meet Davy and Dan'l

That blather about Davy creating a road show is false, and makes me wonder what else the National Gallery of Art is wrong about. The play, "The Lion of the West," featured a character called Nimrod Wildfire, clearly based on Crockett, but Davy had nothing to do with it. It opened in New York in 1831, four years before Crockett left Congress. When it played Washington, Davy was in attendance, and exchanged bows with "Wildfire."

I know you mean the play opened in 1831. But I call BS! Neither of the these paintings look like Fess Parker.

It's obviously a conspiracy perpetrated by time travelers.
