The Battle of Gonzales - The First Battle of the Texas Revolution

The Battle of Gonzales - The First Battle of the Texas Revolution

On October 2, in the village of Gonzales near San Antonio, Texian colonists resisted the attempt by the Mexican officials to sieze a small cannon, challenging the Mexican soldiers to "Come and Take It". Fighting broke out, becoming the last straw in the relationship between Texas and the Mexican government of Santa Anna. This tiny skirmish would set Texas on the road to independence. The flag they fought under would inspire this revolution as well as this podcast.
