Jim Bowie was a Polyglot


Recommended Posts

I was raised in Greenville,Texas and went to Bowie School from grades 1-6.

In the front of the school was a glass-encased Bowie knife, signifying the school's namesake.

I always thought that it was the actual knife used by Jim Bowie.  It wasn't.  But I grew up appreciating the sacrifices made by him and the other Alamo defenders to create the state of Texas.

I wish more folks appreciated the sacrifices made by our ancestors to achieve the freedoms we have today.
