        Dr. Thomas Walker | Early America

        In this video segment from the KET Kentucky Life series, members of the Bell County Historical Society celebrate Bell County as the "Gateway to the American West" and discuss early explorer Dr. Thomas Walker. By reviewing Walker's journal, historians have been able to document the settlement of Kentucky. The segment includes discussion from David W. Burns, author of Gateway: Dr. Thomas Walker and the Opening of Kentucky. Maps are integrated into the video to document Walker's expeditions and their importance in settling the area west of the Appalachian Mountains.

        This resource is part of the Early America collection.
