Mexico’s Independence day is celebrated as September 16, 1810, although their Declaration of Independence would not occur until September 28, 1821, after many years of war. Revolutions are dangerous, and there had been several failed attempts that had been harshly punished. Another conspiracy had been hatched by Miguel Hidalgo, Ignacio Allende, Miguel Dominguez, Juan Aldama and others. Unfortunately their plan had been found out, and it appeared that it would yet be another failed attempt. However, Hidalgo a priest, took to the pulpit on September 16th and announced that he would be taking up arms against the Spanish and invited all to join him in the cause. This speech is known as “”El Grito de Dolores.”
Hidalgo and Allende won several important battles early on but were later defeated at the Battle of Calderon Bridge. Both were put to death, which could have been the end of the rebellion; however, several influential leaders carried the banner of independence including Jose Maria Morelos, Vicente Guerrero, and Guadalupe Victoria. Finally in September of 1821 the Mexican forces were ultimately victorious.
This holiday celebration begins on September 15th in Mexico, when the President of Mexico, recites the “Grito de Dolores” in the Zocalo (Mexico City’s Main Square) and Rings the same bell that was rung by Hidalgo. On the 16th there are many parades, dances, and other festivities. Below is a quick YouTube clip of the current president on September 15th, 2013.
