This fall is named after Tennessee legend David Crockett (who never went by Davy), and it’s located at the state park bearing his name. The wide but short fall is a landmark at the state park. During his time, he was always known as David Crockett. It was only after the 1950s television series put forth by Disney, in which he was dubbed “Davy Crockett,” that this erroneous name came to rise. Tennessee has another state park named for this legend, Davy Crockett Birthplace State Park in upper East Tennessee. The state ought to know better than to name the state park as they did. Perhaps they were trying to cash in on the Crockett craze that followed the shows.
