John Henry

"John Henry is an American folk hero, famous for having raced against a steam powered hammer and won, only to die in victory with his hammer in his hand" (wikipedia)

Why are other tales in the American folk lore lost? It seems that there were many more folk heroes that we all have looked to for inspiration. John Henry was a great legend for everyone not only the African Americans, to be determined to work hard to the end. I think we all could use a reminder of the American folk lore that the country was built upon, to remember where we came from and how this melting pot developed into the country we are today.
