God Bless Texas


NOT TEXAS - TEXAS

It was back in 490 BC when tyranny stood before liberty at a place called Thermopylae and Xerxes and the invading Persians demanded King Leonidas and the Spartans to lay down their arms. Leonidas replied with the words, “Molon Labe.”

On November 25, 1778 , 127 Continental Soldiers and some militiamen totaling about 200, under the command of Colonel John McIntosh, stood defiantly before a British force in Georgia at Ft. Morris and responded to the request of surrender to the British commander Colonel Fuser with “come and take it.”

On October 2, 1835 Mexico’s military commander of Texas, Colonel Domingo de Ugartechea, dispatched a company of Dragoons to retrieve the cannon from the Texians at the town of Gonzales.

Upon demanding surrender of the cannon, the Texians responded, “come and take it” – they voted to fight and deployed 140 to drive off the Mexicans.

The words of Leonidas translate to “Come, Take.” Those words are part of the American fabric and our desire to be free and independent when we are faced by tyranny. God bless Texas y’all!”
