BOWIE'S ROOM

Bowie's Room: It is in one of the small rooms just to the right as one entered the main gate that James Bowie was found dead after the battle. This vignette depicts the bed-ridden Bowie with his slave, Ben and his sister-in-law Juana Asbury. Both of these persons remained with Bowie throughout the siege and survived the battle, although it is more likely he was alone when Mexican soldiers discovered him.
