The History Behind 'Come and Take It'

In 1831, the American colonists of Gonzalez, Texas, requested arms to protect their colony from local freedom fighters. Mexican authorities responded by delivering a small, used cannon. This swivel cannon was mounted to a blockhouse in Gonzales and was later the object of Texas pride. At the minor skirmish known as the Battle of Gonzales—the first battle of the Texas Revolution against Mexico—a small group of Texans successfully resisted the Mexican forces, which had orders to take back their cannon. As a symbol of defiance, the Texans had fashioned a flag containing the phrase “Come and Take It” along with an image of a black star and the cannon they had received four years earlier from Mexican officials. The “Come and Take It” flag served as a symbol of Texas backbone and independence throughout the revolution, and has ever since.

This same spirit of independence and fortitude has served the PEO industry well over the years in its quest to further its mission to provide HR and compliance solutions to small businesses. At this year’s conference, we hope to inspire you to come and take the business opportunities presented by the challenges that drive the need for the PEO value proposition.
