WHO IS THIS


G'day all. Perhaps it is time for hints. He was a US Congressman for a while and died at a pretty famous battle.
Cheers.

I won't pick it because I have found a method that is too easy but I believe Bob Dyer sang a parody "Born on a table cloth in Joe's Caffe"

I would never have picked him without the clue, Jack

If the famous battle was the Alamo, then I shall take a stab in the dark and pick this man, who was famous through a song, when I was a schoolboy

Born on a mountain top in Tennessee,
Greenest state in the land of the free.
Raised in the woods so's he knew every tree,
Killed him a bear when he was only three.
Davy, Davy Crockett King of the Wild Frontier.

Fought single handed through the Injun war,
Till the Creeks was whipped and peace was restored.
And while he was handling this risky chore,
Made himself a legend, forevermore.
Davy, Davy Crockett the man who don't know fear.

He went of to Congress and served a spell
Fixin' up the government and laws as well.
Took over Washington, I heard tell,
And patched up the crack in the Liberty Bell.
Davy, Davy Crockett, seein' his duty clear.

When he come home, his politickin' was done,
While the western march had just begun.
So he packed his gear, and his trusty gun
And let out a grinnin' to follow the sun.
Davy, Davy Crockett, Leadin the Pioneer.

I always wanted a Davey Crockett hat as a kid but my Mother wouldn't let me. She said they were made from cat skins and I would get ring worms from them. I think she just didn't want to spend the money with six kids to feed.

G'day Tony. That's him. I was a bit surprised at what he really looked like when I researched him. Who do you have for us?

Cheers.

Davy Crockett
American Politician
David "Davy" Crockett was a 19th-century American folk hero, frontiersman, soldier, and politician. He is commonly referred to in popular culture by the epithet "King of the Wild Frontier". Wikipedia
You may all go to Hell, and I will go to Texas.
 
Be always sure you are right - then go ahead.
 
Heaven knows that I have done all that a mortal could do, to save the people, and the failure was not my fault, but the fault of others.

Thanks for that, Jack

This one should go quickly

The young man below (if it is not photo shopped), climbed to the highest rung, of the ladder, which old Davy Crockett tried to climb

That is the one, Jack

Who do you have for us all

John Fitzgerald "Jack" Kennedy (May 29, 1917 - November 22, 1963), commonly referred to by his initials JFK, was an American politician who served as the 35th President of the United States from January 1961 until his assassination in November 1963


I do not believe that this man requires a biography to identify him, as he was famous in our era

One of his famous quotes was
My fellow Americans, ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country.

If he had lived, and become a Grey Nomad, he would have made a fantastic Ambassador, he would have said

"My fellow Grey Nomads, ask not what your forum can do for you, ask what you can do for your forum."

I shall go home now, in case I have crossed the political line
