bring on the coffee!


I’m not sure where these photos are (may have been lost in the 1998 flood – if so, this gathering of our Sharers Sunday School Class would have been sometime between December 1997 (when we moved to Seguin) and October 1998 when the Great Guadalupe County (and Comal County and Hays County!) Flood did its worst. Its very worst.

GONZALES “COME AND TAKE IT” CANNON. The Gonzales “come and take it” cannon 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 Anglo-Celtic colonists. The disagreement produced the battle of Gonzales,  considered to be the first battle of the Texas Revolution. On January 1, 1831, Green DeWitt  initiated the new year by writing Ramon Múzquiz,  the political chief of Bexar, asking him to make arrangements for a cannon to be furnished to the Gonzales colonists for protection against hostile Indians. On March 10, 1831, after some delay, James Tumlinson, Jr., a DeWitt colonist at Bexar, received one bronze cannon to be turned over to Green DeWitt at Gonzales. The fact that the gun was not carriage mounted until about September 28, 1835, suggests that in 1831 it was probably swivel mounted in one of the two blockhouses that had been constructed at Gonzales in 1827. Thus mounted it would have served as a visual deterrent to hostile Indians.
