Year of the Woman Lecture Series: Other Lives of Daniel Boone

Event Description

 “Other Lives of Daniel Boone” helps celebrate the 250th anniversary of America's pioneer hero's first excursion through the Cumberland Gap in 1769 by revealing some surprising stories of three women in Daniel Boone’s life across three generations. Daniel Boone lived in North Carolina for 21 years before moving on to Kentucky. We have a strong claim on the life and legacy of this frontier icon. If you already know the life of Daniel Boone--or think you do--your going to be surprised. And, through sharing a host of images, we look at the ways America has embraced, celebrated, and commemorated Daniel Boone through the years. 

This presentation is made possible through funding from the North Carolina Humanities Council. The North Carolina Humanities Council is a nonprofit foundation and a state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
