Mexico Independence Day

mexico independence day

On September 16, 1810,  Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla encouraged Mexicans to stand up against the government of Spain. This was the beginning of Mexican Independence Day.

 “My Children, a new dispensation comes to us today…Will you free yourselves? Will you recover the lands stolen 300 years ago from your forefathers by the hated Spaniards? We must act at once.”- Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla

Independence for the Mexicans was not won on September 10, 1810, but it was surely a start of the journey that would one day bring the country its independence. It took 11 years before the county was actually freed from Spain. The Mexicans wanted to recover the land that was stolen from them 300 years prior.
