Celebrate Texas pride and independence with this limited edition Goliad t-shirt. This special shirt not only has the Goliad flag image on the front, but also the memorable quote from Capt. Phillip Dimmitt on the back.
One week after the first shot of the Texas Revolution was fired at Gonzales, Texans led by George Collinsworth and Ben Milam took the offensive and captured the important Mexican fortress at Goliad. In Spanish these forts were called presidios, and they were originally built to protect a nearby settlement or missionary outpost.
More than two months before elected delegates from throughout Texas met at Washington on the Brazos and voted to break from Mexico, almost 100 settlers at Goliad expressed similar sentiments, signing their own declaration of independence. As the document was signed, a flag designed by Captain Phillip Dimmitt was raised over the presidio.
The flag symbolized the Texans' willingness to face any sacrifice to win their freedom.
