Boone Pun: Where did Daniel shop for clothes? At the Gap of course!

The Cumberland Gap is a narrow pass through the long ridge of the Cumberland Mountains, within the Appalachian Mountains, near the junction of the U.S. states of Kentucky, Virginia, and Tennessee.

Long used by Native Americans, the Cumberland Gap was brought to the attention of settlers in 1750 by Thomas Walker, a Virginia physician and explorer. The path was used by a team of frontiersmen led by Daniel Boone, making it accessible to pioneers who used it to journey into the western frontiers of Kentucky and Tennessee.  

Chief Redstick & Mingo???

Remember Pat Hogan who played Chief Redstick with Fess in Disney's Davy Crockett series?  Here he is with Mingo in Season 1 Episode 14 - 'The Returning' of the Daniel Boone TV show.  What other episodes of the Daniel Boone TV show also included members from the Davy Crockett series?
