Regarding The Route of Hidalgo. In order to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the beginning of the struggle for Mexican Independence, the Mexican Secretary of Public Education erected 260 monuments similar to this one in 1960. They marked the Route of Hidalgo and his Insurgent Army from Dolores to Chihuahua, the place of his final sacrifice.

Hidalgo passed through here in November, 1810, when the town was known as Los López. He was invited to the home of Manuel Muñatones and ate there.
