‘Come and Take it’ Lone Star Cans are Ready for Texas Independence Day
T.I.Day is March 2nd. Will you celebrate with a special Lone Star?
News4SA is reporting that Lone Star is printing up special cans to salute the courage of bunch of rebellious settlers who took on Mexico near Gonzales during the Texas Revolution.
In 1831 Gonzales settlers were granted a cannon from Mexico to help protect them from the Comanche. A few years later relations with Mexican government began to crumble. When the commander of the Mexican Army requested the cannon be returned, the settlers at Gonzales refused.
100 soldiers were sent to take it back. Two days later a battle loomed as the towns people refused to give up the cannon. Two young ladies prepared a flag to show their defiance. It was a picture of a cannon and the words "Come and Take It".
The settlers held off the 100 Mexican soldiers. It was known as the Battle of Gonzales, and it was the first battle of the Texas Revolution against Mexico.
This year, celebrate Texas Independence by tipping back a few special Lone Stars.
