Between 1913 and 1938, Joseph Hampton Rich, a resident of Mocksville, North Carolina, placed 358 metal tablets between Virginia Beach, Virginia and San Francisco, California, in honor of Daniel Boone and his travels. This was an effort to help promote coast to coast highway improvement, tourist travel, patriotism, remembrance of the Battleship Maine, education, memorializing pioneer hero Daniel Boone, and community unity and spirit. The tablets were (at least partially) constructed from metal salvaged from the battleship USS Maine sunk during the Spanish–American War in 1898. The tablets were typically located near schools, government buildings, or along old highway routes.
