in this historic community to hear
a stocky little cannon boom the
opening of the Gonzales Centen-
nial celebration just as its twin
reared the beginning of the Texas j
revolution 100 years ago, a by-
stander murmured wistfully: "I

A neighbor, overhearing him,
asked why; and he replied: "Weil,

Moore, Who commanded the Tex-
ans here at Gonzales and fired
the first shot."

smiled and said: "And my grand-
father was a guard placed over

San Jacinto. I guess we could say
that our folks started and er.dtd
