Palmetto State Park Professional Review and Guide
"Surrounded by early Texas history, Palmetto State Park is 10 miles from of Gonzales, where one of the most famous events on the road to the Alamo occurred, which led to the eventual independence of Texas. On October 2, 1835, the first shot in the Texas Revolution was fired after a group of 18 Texans refused a demand to turn over their only cannon by 150 Mexican dragoons. The Texans’ response of “come and take it” has been a part of military history and Texas legend ever since."
