The route of freedom

In 1810 a criollo priest (the son of two Spaniards born in Mexico, well, at that time New Spain) Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla began the War of Independence. As he went all over Mexico trying to reunite people for the cause, he visited many cities. One of this was Guadalajara, where he approved the foundation of EL DESPERTADOR AMERICANO, one of the most important news papers in journalism history in Mexico, because was the first one to promote liberal ideas.

In order to give a graphic idea of the places Hidalgo visited, these eagle heads points the way he followed. This is at the entrance of Tlaquepaque, where he declared the Abolici├│n de la Esclavitud (The Abolition of Slavery).

Thanks for this information. I am wondering if the end of that struggle was marked by the treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo? Something I remember from history class long ago. . .

The end of independence war was on 1821, but the Treaty of Gpe Higalgo was signed on 1848, and it was when we lost almost half of or territory to the USA... and it is such an interesting part of mexican history.
