Battle of Gonzales

Storyboard Text

  • Battle of Gonzales
  • We just want our cannon back!!!
  • Show us your official documents.
  • Why?
  • Our boss ordered us to come and take it
  • Battle of Gonzales
  • Later...
  • Our leader has sent us.
  • Come and take it
  • Battle of Gonzales
  • Run men, RUN!!!
  • Come and take it
  • Mexico gave Texas a 2 lb cannon (to protect themselves from Native Americans), but after they realized part of Texas was rebelling against Mexican rule, they came to take it back.
  • Battle of Gonzales
  • Everyone, celebrate!!! 
  • Texas was not going to give the cannon back, so instead, they got out their guns and started firing at the Mexicans, they also fired the CANNON itself at the Mexicans as a sign of power and rebelling. 
  • Battle of Gonzales
  • That evening at the celebration...
  • If we can beat Mexico that easily, why don't we take over the Alamo
  • Domingo de Ugartechea (an army general for Mexico) told Francisco de Castaneda (one of the men shown above) to get the cannon, but only use force if it comes to it. So the Mexicans have no other option but to run and fire a few shots back.
  • Battle of Gonzales
  • Meanwhile...
  • The Texans in the battle rushed to tell the others of the recent victory over Mexico.
  • We beat Mexico, they surrendered!
  • Why??!!
  • This battle's victory led to a celebration that night. Many Texans felt unstoppable because they just beat part of the Mexican army, so they were planning to take over the Alamo in San Antonio next.
  • Yee-Haw!!! Yay, we beat Mexico!!!
  • Santa Anna was furious (see his red face) that Texas beat his troops he sent over to get the cannon, so he decided to go over to Texas himself (in the middle of winter) and put the Texans in their place.
  • Get our troops ready, we are going to Texas!
  • You did what??!!
  • Sir, we had no other option. We had to run away.
