Regarding Captain Pedro Sainz de Baranda y Borreiro. Although Mexico gained independence from Spain in 1821, it was another four years later when the siege described here against the final Spanish forces at the Fort of San Juan de Ulúa ended their military presence in Mexico. The war for Mexican independence had taken fifteen years since Hidalgo's first declaration in 1810.
