Storied American frontiersman, soldier, and politician (1734–1820) whose varied exploits made him one of the young nation’s first folk heroes. After earning a youthful reputation as a hunter of exceptional skill, Boone served with the British military during the French and Indian War. After pioneering a settlement in present-day Kentucky, Boone was captured and “adopted” by a Shawnee tribe during the Revolutionary War. After his escape, he continued to fight with the Continental Army and was promoted to the rank of lieutenant colonel in 1780. In the following year he was elected as a representative to the Virginia General Assembly, commencing a long and distinguished political career. After fighting in some of the last major campaigns of the war, Boone continued his work as a legislator, surveyor, businessman, and land speculator. Ever enticed by a sense of adventure and wanderlust, Boone moved his family several times, eventually settling in then-sparsely populated Missouri, where he served as a syndic (a judge/jury in the Spanish-controlled territory) and military commandant and indulged his passion for hunting and trapping. With his final words, “I'm going now. My time has come,” Boone died at the age of 85.

Offered here is an example of Boone's extraordinarily scarce signature, "Daniel Boone," penned by the iconic pioneer on a .75" x 2.85" document segment in a rich black ink. In overall fine condition. Boone remains one of the scarcest autographs in early American history! Authenticated and encapsulated by Beckett Authentication Services (BAS).
