What Started Mexican War of Independence

Mexican war of independence started on September 16th, 1810; and it was an armed conflict between the Mexicans and Spanish colonial forces that lasted for more than 10 years.

The main reason for the war was the whish of the people of Mexico to be free from Spanish rule and to be able to govern its own country.

For many years Mexicans were divided among themselves and were not able to unite and adequately oppose the Spanish colonial forces. However, this didnt stop one man from trying to unite his countrymen and organize them to rebel against the Spanish rule.

On 16 September, 1810, Father Miguel Hidalgo made a famous speech and among many things said: My friends and countrymen, neither the king nor tributes exist for us anymore. The moment of our freedom has come and the hour of our liberty has struck. Only a few hours remain before you see me at the head of the men who take pride in being free. Join me, join us and be free for the first time in your lives. Long live Our Lady of Guadalupe! Long live Independence!

In 1813 on 6 November the Congress signed the Mexican declaration of independence known as the Solemn Act of the Declaration of Independence of Northern America. However, it would take another seven more years until this dream became reality.

The Mexican war for independence lasted for 10 long years and it clamed more than 15 000 Mexican lives and close to 500 000 wounded. It was a long, exhausting and very challenging decade for Mexican people; but in the end they won their freedom and became an independent nation.

Nowadays the 16 September is celebrated in present Mexico as the Mexican Independence Day and it is a very important national holyday. There is no Mexican that doesnt celebrate this holyday and everybody takes part in this celebration including the president of Mexico.
