The Battle Of Gonzales
The Battle Of Gonzales was the ignition to the Texas Revolution. This battle was between the Texan and Mexican Military. This battle took place on October 2, 1835, near the location of Gonzales, Texas.
It was a place where you would not want to be. this battle started the whole Texas Revolution. The leader and dictator at the time was Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna. The Texans took hold of the Alamo, so the Mexican Army went to go take it back. The battle of the Alamo did not have to happen if Davy Crockett blew it up. Instead he decided to hold it off and then came the Travis letter.
But before all this the Texans put a flag that said, "Come and Take It". The Mexican Army came with only a few soldiers telling the Texans to return the cannon and nothing will happen. The Texans refused to the group which were lead by a colonel named Domingo de Ugartechea. Then the soldiers left. Only to return with Lieutenant Francisco de Castaneda and with 100 soldiers.
The Travis Letter
The Battle Of The Alamo was a bloody fight that lasted for a straight 2 days until the entire battle was over. It was 2,000 soldiers versus 200 Texans at the battle of Gonzales. The battle escalated very slow but then the pace of the battle caught up. Near the end of the battle with the Texans losing Travis wrote a letter out to those people calling out for help to also stand up.
The Travis letter then got out and everyone in the Alamo was then later killed and executed. For not obeying the Mexican Armies orders to deliver the cannon. So these are the events that took place in the Battle Of Gonzales. The Alamo then later had other battles like the Battle of the Alamo. The Alamo was then remembered as "Remember The Alamo". This is how it happened.
The Travis Letter was a call for help during the fall of the Alamo. The letter was about the Texans losing the battle of Gonzales. And that they need more troops and need help from wherever they can get.
