Battle of Gonzales
The Battle That Could Change Texas
Before the Battle
Fast forward a few years, as Santa Anna was now in charge of Texas. He was looking through papers when he found out that the Gonzales town had gotten a cannon. He wanted it back.
Colonel William Travis decided to bury the cannon near San Antonio, but the cannon broke down during the travel, so Colonel Travis buried the cannon in the San Marcos River.
They started going to the river about 7 P.M. And found 100 mexican soldiers. They fired the cannon. One shot killed a person, which led to the Mexicans fleeing from the scene.
