This is a 14 slide, highly animated, power point presentation on Famous Americans States - Jim Bowie. Each of the slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.
James Bowie was an American frontiersman, slave trader, smuggler, Indian fighter and soldier in the Texas Revolution. He was among the defenders at the Battle of the Alamo in 1836, where he perished along with all of his comrades. Despite his somewhat checkered personal history, Bowie is considered one of Texas' greatest heroes.
Bowie was an interesting man in his time, a renowned hothead, brawler and troublemaker who went to TX to escape his creditors in the USA. He had become famous due to his fights and his legendary knife, and once fighting broke out in TX, he soon became known as a solid leader of men with a cool head under fire. His lasting fame, however, came about as a result of his presence at the fateful Battle of the Alamo. In life he was a con man and slave trader: in death he became a great hero, and today he is revered in TX.
