On the ridge
On this day in 1769, the frontiersman Daniel Boone reached what is now Kentucky after months of traveling through the Appalachian Mountains. Boone ventured westward through the Appalachians despite an order from Britain forbidding settlers to explore westward. His path through the mountain range became known as the Wilderness Trail, and it opened up new sections of territory for Anglo - Americans to explore. :cool:
