Battle of Gonzales

Battle of Gonzales: "Recall of the Gonzales Cannon. As part of the disarmament of Texians or the consolidation of armaments for suppression of Federalist sentiments by the Centralista (Santanista) dictatorship, the military authorities in San Antonio requested the return of a cannon which had been 'loaned' to the DeWitt Colonists in 1831 for protection against Indians."
