Lecture: New Research into the "Come and Take It" Cannon


A small cannon in Gonzales effectively ushered in the Texas Revolution on Oct. 2, 1835, as Mexican dragoons tried to take it from the citizens of the town. Afterward, the cannon's fate is disputed. Was it buried and rediscovered in 1936 or was it seized by Mexican troops after the battle of the Alamo? Was there only one cannon?

Gregg Dimmick will discuss his new research about the whereabouts of the "Come and Take It" cannon." The program is held in MD Anderson Hall at the University of St. Thomas.
