Everyone knows the story of Davy Crockett at the Alamo, but Davy’s story didn’t begin in Texas. There’s another story of Davy on the Ohio River as he floated along on a flatboat. The boatmen of the early 1800s had a hard life, and fistfighting was instrumental in proving how tough they could be. Davy soon learned that getting into a fight with a keelboatman—a self-proclaimed ring-tailed roarer—might seem like a fun sport, but when that ring-tailed roarer was a seasoned fighter, the outcome was likely to be painful.
