Texans remember the Alamo. The first shots in the Texas Revolution were fired in Gonzales.The Mexican government gave a small cannon to Texian settlers to protect themselves from native Indian tribes. When the settlers began wanting Independence, Mexican troops tried to retrieve the cannon. Gonzales refused 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.
