One of the main jobs of historians is to interpret the past by reviewing primary documents, scholarly secondary sources, and then creating an analysis of this research. In this assignment, you will be presenting your own interpretation of Jim Bowie. Once you have completed your research, submit a mini-essay on your findings concerning Bowie. You may consider the following questions but are not limited to them: How should modern Texans view Bowie? How and/or why does Bowie’s history of slave smuggling change your interpretation of him? In a case like Bowie, how do we separate fact from fiction/legend and find the true historical picture of the man and his actions?
