Portrait of David Crockett
One could make a very good case that David Crockett is the most famous Scots-Irish man that there has been to date. (Though Neil Armstrong would also be in the running). The portrait above was done in 1834 by New York painter Samuel Stillman Osgood (1808-1885). On a lithograph printed by Childs & Leman, Philadelphia, David Crockett wrote: "I am happy to acknowledge this to be the only correct likeness that has been taken of me. David Crockett."
