Regarding Allende Fountain. José Ignacio Allende y Unzaga (b. San Miguel de Allende, 1769 - d. Chihuahua 1811) was one of the leaders and initiators of the independence movement of Mexico. Captain of Spanish militias, he sympathized with the idea of independence. He attended the first secret meetings of the rebellion organized in Querétaro and fought alongside Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla in the first stages of the War of Independence. He relieved Hidalgo as the military leader of the insurgents. In Acatita de Baján, Coahuila, he was betrayed and arrested by Ignacio Elizondo, along with Miguel Hidalgo, Abasolo Mariano, Mariano Jiménez and Juan Aldama and taken to the city of Chihuahua where he was tried for insubordination, was shot and beheaded. His head was displayed on a corner of the Alhóndiga de Granaditos
