DON’T MESS WITH TEXAS SERIES / GONZALES CANNON – 2 TROY OUNCE – 39MM
Our “Don’t Mess with Texas” series showcases some of the iconic things that make Texas so special. The forth of the series is the Gonzales Cannon.
The Gonzales cannon of “Come and Take It” fame was a Spanish-made, bronze artillery piece of six-pound caliber. The gun was the object of contention in late September and early October 1835 between a Mexican military detachment from Bexar and American colonists who settled in Texas. The disagreement produced the battle of Gonzales, considered to be the first battle of the Texas Revolution.
