Our Come and Take It sticker features a shrimp under a cork. If you fish the Gulf of Mexico, the surf or little saltwater cuts you know the power of the shrimp and cork. We put our twist on something that has been copied over and over. We still know the true meaning of the phrase and highly respect it. A group of Texians showed some real backbone in October of 1835 and we are thankful they did.
Hobo Outdoor Co. tidbit: Come and Take It was once used by Spartan King Leonidas I. The battle of Thermopylae occurred in 480 BC and King Leonidas used the words Molon Labe. Xerxes I of Persia demanded the Greeks lay down their arms and in response Leonidas refused and uttered the words that mean Come and Take It. Come and Take It was used again in 1778 at Fort Morris in Georgia. During the Battle of Gonzales in 1835 the term was used again on a battle flag in Texas when the Texians refused to give back a cannon. This was the spark to the Texas Revolution.
