The Texas Military Department is displaying a historic state battle flag with the slogan “COME AND TAKE IT” at its headquarters in Austin amid a border stand-off with the federal government.

The flag represents the spirit of free Texans fighting tyranny and is linked to the Texas Revolution.

Texas has been dealing with a surge of illegal immigrants at its border, leading to disputes with the Biden administration.

“The volunteer spirit that has now characterized the military forces of Texas for more than one hundred fifty years was first called upon during this crisis. It was against a determined group of men that [Mexican Gen. Antonio López de Santa Anna] sent his dictator-controlled army. It was at Gonzales that the motto — ‘Come and Take It’ — was born,” the Texas Military Forces Museum said.

“When Santa Anna sent a Mexican commander to take a cannon from Gonzales, the Texans rallied forces from the Guadeloupe, the Colorado and the Brazos for aid, then told the Mexican commander to ‘Come and Take It.’ The latter retreated six miles, and the Texans, tired of waiting for an attack charged the Mexicans on October 2, 1835, and the Mexicans retreated in full flight.”

Governor Greg Abbott has ordered state forces to protect the border, despite legal challenges.
