Former Rangers to honor Immortal 32
The Former Texas Rangers Association and Foundation have announced plans to place a special Texas Ranger Memorial Cross at the Gonzales Memorial Museum during the Come and Take It Day celebration on Saturday, Oct. 5. The Ranger Memorial Cross is the highest honor that the Former Texas Rangers Association bestows.
After receiving Travis’s “To the People of Texas and All Americans in the World” appeal on Feb. 25, 1836, the Gonzales Rangers rode out of Gonzales on the evening of Saturday, Feb. 27, led by commanding officer Lt. George C. Kimble and Cap. Albert Martin.
A large granite marker on the Alamo grounds behind the long barracks depicts the men and honors their contributions. A Centennial Monument on the Gonzales Memorial Museum grounds was placed to honor these men in 1936. The Ranger Memorial Cross will be placed near this marker.
