After the surrender of the city on July 28, 1821, at the San Martín Estate, General Agustín de Iturbide made his triumphal entry into Puebla on August 2, 1821. The members of the Three Guarantees Army were welcomed with great joy and celebration by civil and ecclesiastical authorities. The first chief of the Three Guarantees Army was hosted by Bishop Antonio Joaquín Pérez at the Episcopal Palace. On Sunday, August 5, a solemn ceremony to pledge allegiance to the Independence was held in the presence of General Iturbide. The pledge of allegiance to the Independence was declared in three different places: the Municipal Palace, the Episcopal Palace and the Espíritu Santo (holy spirit) College (plaza de la democracia).

In each of these places, Agustín de Iturbide gave away a hundred pesos in silver coins to the people who had gathered to witness the event.
