Regarding 200th Anniversary of the First Cry of Salvadoran Independence. The "First Cry of Independence" from Spain for Central America came on November 5, 1811 in San Salvador. Manuel José Arce proclaimed in a speech that "There is no King, no Intendent, no Captain General, we only owe allegiance to our Mayor!" This and other similar proclamations happened in what is now La Libertad Park, San Salvador. This initial proclamation was put down by the Spanish with the arrest and dispersal of those seeking independence. Independence from Spain was finally gained on September 15, 1821 after ten more years of struggle.
