crockettThe report shown appeared in the “Staunton Spectator” newspaper of Virginia, May 5, 1836. Accuracy in reporting the news certainly wasn’t any better back in 1836.  Have you ever found similar inaccurate reporting?

    To Whomever:

    It is seems impossible , but, plausible that he did make out of the fort trying
    to escape. The newspaper column is quite a surprise to me being a historian

    If he did make it , he surely would have heralded as a hero and reported
    to our government since he was a U. S . senator.

    Would like to hear more evidence if any

    Thank you for sharing
