Ted Belue, in Life of Daniel Boone, provides this description: “An American Frontiersman, around 1770. His hat is of fur felt; his caped ‘hunting shirt’ is linen, as are his breeches. His moccasins and leggings are deerskin and he cradles a long rifle. The dogs are brindled Mountain Curs, a breed of the day.”

1775

Daniel Boone and his trailblazers, including his younger brother Squire, had reached the future site of Boonesborough at the confluence of the Kentucky River and Otter Creek on April 1, 1775.  Judge Richard Henderson of the newly formed Transylvania Company, the leader of the expedition, having signed a treaty with the Cherokees, brought his main party to join Boone at the chosen site on April 20.
