Daniel Boone - BOOKS AND OTHER SOURCES ABOUT BOONE'S TRIAL

This 19th-century print depicts an artist’s impression of Boonesborough. It was this fort (and its people) which Boone was accused of betraying. Like other 18th-century Kentucky forts, during this time period, Boonesborough consisted of individual cabins sharing a common outer-wall stockade. Image online via Wikimedia Commons.

 

It is extremely difficult to find sources about Boone's court martial. What few materials were written are hard-to-get and frequently out-of-print.  Among those available are the following titles:

  • Faragher, John Mack - Daniel Boone. New York: Henry Holt, 1992. This book is still in print and is considered the definitive modern biography. It does discuss the court martial (between pages 199-202).
