    About the Gonzales Flag:

    The 2021 Magnet features the Gonzales Flag. This flag is a symbol of the spirit of independence that is in
    every Texan. We hope you enjoy displaying the 2021 TSRA magnet, and that you contribute what you can to this
    important fundraiser.

    In September, 1835 the commander of the Mexican garrison at San Antonio sent some men to Gonzales to take back a cannon that had been loaned to the town to fight off Indian attacks. The citizens denied the request. After the Mexican commander sent dragoons to demand the cannon, the Texas force grew to over 200 armed men. Two ladies, Cynthia Burns and Evaline DeWitt, painted a flag on cotton cloth, showing the cannon, the lone star of Texas and a challenge to the Mexican soldiers. The Texans surprised the Mexican army early on October 2, and the battle that followed was brief, with the Texans prevailing.

    You can request additional magnets to be sent to your mailing address by selecting the number of magnets (please, no more than three) and confirming the total contribution amount for the magnets you are requesting.
