History of the Gonzales flag
The famous Come and Take It Gonzales flag was painted by Cynthia Burns and Evaline DeWitt on a cotton cloth and flown at Gonzales Texas in late September 1835 which was the site of the first battle in the Texas war for independence from Mexico. Because of concerns about a Texas rebellion, Mexican troops were sent to recover a cannon that had been given to the town to fight off occasional Indian attacks. In a display of defiance, the Texans, refusing to be disarmed, fired on the Mexican troops, compelling them to withdraw. The Gonzales flag has become a popular symbol of second amendment rights nationwide and other variations of the design have since been created.
