1861 Texas convened a secession convention to vote on severing ties with the union. The convention voted overwhelmingly to secede and join the Confederacy.

Battle of Gonzales The first battle of the Texas Revolution. Mexican forces were ordered to take a brass cannon from the town of Gonzales to San Antonio and Texans refused to give up the cannon. Texans attacked the Mexicans and the battle ended quickly.
