You bet! Crockett inspired lot of wild tales and books were written about them. He was more legend than a historical figure. One point, I don't think he was ever called Colonel while he was in the House. He was an enlisted man in the war of 1812 and left before his term of enlistment expired.

wikipedia: "Crockett was elected lieutenant colonel of the Fifty-seventh Regiment of Tennessee Militia on March 27, 1818."
