General Carleton, who commanded the Column, was verbally attacked by many soldiers, but Bowie seemed to remain popular.
Bowie, 42, returned to California and was appointed Naval Officer for the Port of San Francisco.
What he found was that Bowie was living by himself in a hotel at the time of his death.
His estate consisted of and a gold watch, and he lacked a marker on his burial site.
The Old Western Bowie has a real crown stag handle and nickel silver guard. The handle is very smooth and comfortable, and fits the hand well.
The blade is very good quality, comes almost perfectly sharp out the box, and the back blade is not sharp, but is shaped to be sharpened fairly easily. I doubt you could buy a better knife, no matter how much you spend.
His obscurity at death did not fit Bowie’s earlier life.
He was born in Maryland in 1823 to a prominent family.
His father died when George was two, and his mother moved the family from the Bowie plantation to Chester, Penn.After completing their three-year tour, Bowie and most of his regiment were mustered out at Franklin, Texas.Having the mustering out in Texas was intended to allow a comfortable trip home, but the plan backfired when the soldiers were underpaid and not given rations for that trip.A year later, the Mexican-American War began and George felt the army was more interesting than politics.He enlisted and was made a First Lieutenant and later was promoted to Captain and brevetted Major.
