Product Image Gallery:

Enclosed in a wooden frame with a faux leather pattern, this cotton Come and Take It Battle flag includes two "brass" grommets and has been distressed to give it that worn "vintage" feel. The outer dimensions of the frame are 31.5" x 27.5".

One of our most famous battle flags, The Gonzales Flag was the Texans answer to Mexico when they asked for their cannon back. This flag was flown as the first shots of the war for Independence were fired on October 2, 1835.

In late September, 1835, the Mexican garrison at San Antonio, sent a few men to Gonzales to recover a cannon that had been loaned to the town. The citizens of Gonzales denied the request. The Mexicans sent dragoons under Captain Francisco Castaneda to demand the cannon be returned. As word of the conflict spread, a group of 200 armed Texans was formed. Two women in Gonzales, Cynthia Burns and Evaline DeWitt, painted this flag on cotton cloth, depicting the cannon, the Texas Lone Star and a clear taunt to the Mexicans. The Mexican troops moved north to Gonzales. The Texans decided that they had to attack before Mexican force grew larger and stronger. They crossed the river that evening, formed their battle lines and surprised the Mexicans at dawn on October 2nd, 1835. The battle that day was short; when the Texans opened fire, the Mexicans withdrew.
