Vicente Ramón Guerrero Saldaña (August 10, 1782 – February 14, 1831) was one of the leading revolutionary generals of the Mexican War of Independence. He fought against Spain for independence in the early 19th century, and later served as President of Mexico, coming to power in a coup. He was of Afro-Mestizo descent, championed the cause of Mexico's common people, and abolished slavery during his brief term as president. His execution in 1831 by the conservative government that ousted him in 1829 was a shock to the nation. Adapted from Wikipedia

This statue was placed here during the last part of the 19th century and is attributed to the workshop of Jesús Contreras. Like many famous Mexican Independence leaders, Guerrero is so famous that it is not necessary to include his name on the monument.
