The Birthplace of Texas Independence and The Gateway to Texas History

Remember the Alamo and the Texas Immortals.

Texans remember the Alamo. The first shots in the Texas Revolution were fired in Gonzales.The Mexican government had given a small cannon to Texian settlers to protect themselves from native Indian tribes. When the settlers began agitating for Independence, Mexican troops tried to retrieve the cannon. Gonzales locals fired on the Mexican soldiers, refusing to return the cannon, and dared the troops to Come and Take It by waving a flag with the defiant phrase. The cannon is on display at the Gonzales Memorial Museum.
