Carving Their Niche: The Bowie Family in Louisiana

Aug 28, 2014 - Aug 31, 2014

 Of course, an exhibit on the Bowie family is not complete without a display of the famed knives that made Jim Bowie famous.  Defining a “Bowie knife” is difficult as the term is used to describe a number of styles of large knives; even the story of how the first “Bowie knife” came into existence is varied.  Regardless, Jim Bowie and his knife have left an indelible mark on the American, and particularly Southern, landscape. Several other early 19th century artifacts and Bowie family portraits will be on display as well.
