September 16th is a profound moment in Mexican history. It all started on this day in 1810 when Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla, a priest, uttered what is called the “Grito de Dolores” or “Cry of Dolores,” from the small town of Dolores near Guanajuato. It was a call to action for Mexicans to free themselves from the ruling Spaniards. Hidalgo rang the church bells early in the morning and encouraged his community to revolt. His words were heard throughout the town, and reverberated throughout the entire country. And after a decade of war, Mexico’s independence was declared on September 16, 1810.
