Kentucky Colonel Articles
There are a great number of articles about the Kentucky Colonel, there are so many in fact we need to objectively classify and distinguish between fiction, non-fiction, humor, parody, law, and the first amendment starting with Daniel Boone who was recognized in England prior to the beginning of the 19th century. It is clearly understood who the "First Kentucke Colonel" was after reading what is believed to be non-fiction "The Discovery, Settlement and Present State of Kentucke" by John Filson which was published in 1784. An advance signed copy was sent to George Washington by John Filson, who acknowledged Col. Daniel Boone its Pioneer and architect.
