Engraved frieze on the San Jacinto Monument, The First Shot

Description: Photograph of engraved text at the base of the San Jacinto Monument in La Porte, Texas. There is a family walking next to the monument. Text: The first shot of the revolution of 1835-36 was fired by the Texans at Gonzales, October 2, 1835, in resistance to a demand by the Mexican soldiers for a small cannon held by the colonists. The Mexican garrison at Goliad fell October 9; the Battle of ConcepciĆ³n was won by the Texans October 28. San Antonio was captured December 10, 1835 after five days of fighting in which the indomitable Benjamin R. Milam died a hero, and the Mexican army evacuated Texas.
