In early January 1831, Green DeWitt wrote to the top political official of Bexar, and requested armament for the defense of the colony of Gonzales. This request was granted by delivery of a small used cannon. The small bronze cannon was received by the colony and was mounted to a blockhouse in Gonzales and later was the object of Texas pride. On October 2, 1835, a minor skirmish known as the Battle of Gonzales that would become the first battle of the Texas Revolution against Mexico, a small group of Texans successfully resisted the Mexican forces who had orders to seize their cannon. As a symbol of defiance, the Texans had fashioned a flag containing the phrase "come and take it" along with a black star and an image of the cannon that they had received four years earlier from Mexican officials. This was the same message that was sent to the Mexican government when they told the Texans to return the cannon; the Mexicans attempted to forcefully retrieve the cannon and failed. This historic slogan, translated into English and accompanied by a star and cannon has become a symbol of pride, resistance, and Patriotism among Texans.
