NASHVILLE, Tenn. - A bronze bust of Davy Crockett was unveiled at the Tennessee State Capitol.
The artist, Antonio Mendez, said he was honored to have the opportunity to re-create the historical figure, but for him, it was more about teaching others about the man behind the name.
"My signature is on that but the lasting thing about this is that it's going to be here for a very long time, there's such a permanence about a bronze sculpture and that it's going to be part of storytelling for generations to come and there's a great deal of pride that I have in that as an artist," said Mendez.
Crockett was born in East Tennessee in 1786. During his life, Crockett served as a farmer, a frontiersman, a lawmaker, and of course a soldier.
Crockett died at the Alamo in 1836.
