Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla

Father of Mexican Independence

The liberation of Mexico, after 300 years of domination by Spain, started on September 16, 1810, in the town of Dolores in what is now the state of Guanajuato, Mexico. Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla a priest, and others patriots, among whom were Juan Aldama and Ignacio Allende, were at first successful, but eventually Miguel Hidalgo was captured and executed. The war continued until its final victory in 1821 under the leadership of Vicente Guerrero and Augustin de Iturbide.
