James Bowie Part 1: We are Doomed Sir. We Have No Chance.

On March 5, 1836, James Bowie was sick and lying on a cot in the Alamo when he received a call from the future…

In this episode, Bowie will go in detail about the Sandbar Duel that cemented his legacy in the history books. He’ll dispel some of the myths of his life including the fact that he is not a knife fighter. And he’ll tell the story of his search for a lost silver mine that probably never existed.

Jack Edmondson’s interpretation of James Bowie is exceptional. His deep knowledge and engaging storytelling bring this complex character to life. Somehow Jack highlights his bravery and historical significance without romanticizing too much where we’d forget that Bowie did some shady stuff. Thank you, Jack, for giving us this vivid glimpse into early American history.
