Goliad Declaration Flag - December 1835
The Bloody Arm of Defiance
Months before independence was declared at Washington-on-the-Brazos, Captain Philip Dimmitt's men, along with the citizens of Goliad, drew up their own Declaration of Independence from Mexico.
It was signed at Presidio la Bahia on the altar of the chapel of Our Lady of Loreto. This is the flag they raised outside the chapel in celebration and defiance, heavy on the latter. They had previously rechristened the presidio as Fort Defiance.

The paper is acid free, cold press cotton watercolor with an elegant ever-so-lightly-textured finish. This surface allows the inks to 'bite', reproducing the shading and tonality of the original map vividly, beautifully, and exactly.
The inks are guaranteed color-fast for 80 years, which means you won't need to lay out the extra money for UV glass. You can hang your map in direct sun and it will be just as bright when they are passed on to the next generation it is the day it ships.
It's an instant heirloom. Get yours before they're gone...and get one to give to a friend. He'll owe you!
