OriginEdit

John Henry Moore (1800 - 1880) was an early Texan settler best known for being in command of the American Army at the Battle of Gonzales during the Texas Revolution. As the commander in charge of a small platoon of soldiers Moore requested extra weapons and only received a single cannon. Regardless with the use of that cannon and his men they were able to resist Mexican forces from taking Fort Gonzales. After the Mexicans were pushed back the men hung a banner above the front doors to the fort telling the Mexican Army to, "Come and Take it!" with the cannon and star drawn above those words. This angered the Mexican soldiers leading to another attack, however the second one didn't seem as organized as the force and for now the army around the fort was crippled as the American soldiers along with Moore celebrated a minor victory for the war but a major one for morale.
