Inherited by many Americans as a cry of defiance, the saying "Come and Take It" actually comes from the Battle of Gonzales, the first military engagement of the Texas Revolution. When the Mexican authorities demanded the return of a cannon loaned to the colonists of Gonzales in 1831, the citizens denied the request. A battle ensued. It was fought near Gonzales, Texas, on October 2, 1835, between Texian settlers and a detachment of Mexican army soldiers. Within two days, up to 140 Texians gathered in Gonzales, all determined not to give up the cannon.
