Daniel Boone Dies

On this day in 1820 the great pioneering frontiersman Daniel Boone dies quietly in his sleep at his son's home near present-day Defiance, Missouri. He was 86.

Boone was born in 1734 in Berks County, Pennsylvania. Following a squabble with the Pennsylvania Quakers, Boone's family decided to head south and west for less crowded regions, and they eventually settled in the Yadkin Valley of North Carolina. There the young Daniel Boone began his life-long love for wilderness, spending long days exploring the still relatively unspoiled forests and mountains of the region. Boone's passion was for the outdoors, and he quickly became a superb marksman, hunter and woodsman.

Never satisfied to stay put for very long, Boone soon began making ever longer and more ambitious journeys into the relatively unexplored lands to the west. In May of 1769, Boone and five companions crossed over the Cumberland Gap and explored along the south fork of the Kentucky River. Impressed by the fertility and relative emptiness of the land. Boone returned in 1773 with his family, hoping to establish a permanent settlement. An Indian attack prevented that first attempt from succeeding, but Boone returned two years later to open the route that became known as Boone's Trace (or the Wilderness Road) between the Cumberland Gap and a new settlement along the Kentucky River called Fortress. Boonesboro eventually became one of the most important gateways for the early American settlement of the Trans-Appalachian West.

Boone was a militia officer during the American Revolutionary War (1775–1783), which in Kentucky was fought primarily between settlers and British-allied American Indians.

He was elected to the first of his three terms in the Virginia General Assembly during the war, and fought in the Battle of Blue Licks in 1782, one of the last battles of the American Revolution.

Boone became a symbol of the western pioneering spirit for many Americans. Ironically Boone moved even further west in 1799, trying to escape the civilized regions he had been so instrumental in creating. Finally settling in Missouri. His arrival in St. Louis was a big affair and he was appointed Magistrate by the Spanish government which ruled the region at the time. Legend has it that in 1810 he traveled as far west as the Yellowstone river. He lived out the rest of his life doing what he loved best: hunting and trapping and spending time with his children and grandchildren.

Daniel Boone is quoted to have said, "I have never been lost. But I will admit to having been confused for a few weeks."

Bill O’Rielly spent much of his time on his daily television show last night whining about how unfair he was portrayed by CNN. According to CNN O’Rielly was a racist and he was really upset about this false image that CNN had given. However, O’Rielly has no trouble giving false portrayals of other people. Any white person who speaks about preserving their heritage is labeled as a racist by O’Rielly. While there are a few out there that really do have a hatred for non-Whites, most White Nationalists believe in self-determination for all people and are not concerned about hating anyone. We do want to preserve our heritage and culture. We do not want America to look like Mexico or some other 3rd world nation. We do believe we have a unique character and heritage worth preserving. But it does not mean we hate everyone else. But people like Bill O’Rielly find it just too easy to call every white man or women who expresses racial pride a bigot. But now he is crying like a two year old for being called a racist. "I am not a racist." he remarked.

Well I don’t know what a racist is. Your definition of a racists may be different than mind. But I will say I do not hate anyone, but I do love my race, my heritage and my Christian faith. I want those things preserved and I want my children, my grandchildren and those children born after them to embrace our race, heritage and faith also.

Bill O’Rielly stated that anyone who is a racist is an ignorant fool. In discussing this idea of racism he mentioned that his grandmother was prejudice and afraid of blacks. Bill O’Rielly in effect goes on national TV in front of millions of people and calls his dear old grandmother, laying silent in her grace an "ignorant fool." Bill O’Rielly should be ashamed of himself.

Nothing especially eventful happened yesterday. Just another work day in the office. A reporter from Tulsa is suppose to be here this afternoon. We’ll see if she shows up.

This issue of the Victory Report was mailed separately from The Crusader. You should have it is the mail in about 10 days. Also another issue of The Crusader was sent to the printer yesterday. This issue will still be of the old format. We do plan on getting the issue resolved with printing The Crusader in a tabloid format.

Also a note about moving - if you move you need to send us your new address ASAP because the post office DOES NOT forward The Crusader to our new address. Why? Because it is mailed 3rd class and the post office will only forward FIRST CLASS mail. So if you are moving write us directly with your new address.

If you also are a subscriber to The Torch, then you need to write to BOTH addresses. Keep in mind that the Torch, published by Thomas Robb Ministries is completely different than The Crusader. Every thing about the two are kept separate.

The address for The Torch is: P. O. Box 354, Bergman, AR 72615. The address for The Crusader is: P. O. Box 2222, Harrison, AR 72601.

Don’t forget White Christian Heritage Festival - October 20.
Winter Fellowship Conference - December 1-2.
Thank you for your support and keep spreading the GOOD NEWS of White Christian Revival!
