Israel Boone would be one of 72 killed at the Battle of Blue Licks, one of the last battles of the Revolutionary War, on 19 Aug 1782. He was 23. His father, Daniel, was there and saw his son killed. Coincidentally, Darby Hinton, who played Israel, was born on the 175th anniversary of Israel's death, 19 Aug 1957. See more »
This series gave rise to the urban legend that Daniel Boone and Davy Crockett were one and the same person. In fact, the producers had intended the show to be about Crockett, but Walt Disney would not sell them the rights, so they used the name Daniel Boone instead. See more »
I am very pleased with the with the whole series of Daniel Boone. The first and second seasons were package very nice with only 2 disc in a case and a lot of information about the episodes on it. However, when I received the third season, all the disc were in the same case, with very little information. I was disappointed in the packaging, but still pleased with the show itself.It seemed like they cheap ed out on us and are not providing the same quality as was in the beginning. I used to sit with my daddy and watch Daniel Boone way back when it first aired. It is the only show that I know of with the setting of the frontier in the early Revolutionary days. We often forget the sacrifice those people made for us. If there is any other show like it, please tell me. I just preordered the fourth season, and I hope the packaging is better. A great show to watch with your family!!!!!
