Monumento al Insurgente Desconocido
Bajo la Presidencia de Francisco Salgado, Presidente de la H. Junta de Administración Civil de Dolores Hidalgo, se cambian los nombres de las calles y el Jardín "Ocampo" pasa a ser Jardín "Pípila".

En las décadas de los 30’s y 40’s de siglo pasado, existió una primera estatua al Insurgente Desconocido doloreto en el centro de la plaza – similar a la actual -, elaborada de cantera rústica representando a un soldado desconocido nacido en este solar patrio y que se une a la causa libertaria de Don Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla, recordando que por la actual calle Jalisco salió el primer Ejército de México. La vox populi comenzó a asociar el nombre del jardín a este coloso llamándolo el Pípila, y a esta pequeña plaza el Jardín Chiquito, comparándolo en tamaño con el Jardín Independencia, plaza de armas o plaza principal con la que ya contaba la Cuna de la Independencia.

El 16 de septiembre de 1950, se inaugura la nueva estatua del insurgente desconocido.

A iniciativa de los Mexicanos Residentes en Chicago se erige un nuevo monumento que rinde tributo a los hijos de Dolores Hidalgo que acompañaron al Padre de la Patria en la lucha por la emancipación de México, colocando en el ángulo noreste de la referida plaza una nueva estatua de cantera rosa que ostenta

Unknown Insurgent Monument
Under de Presidency of Francisco Delgado, President of the Honorable Council of Dolores Hidalgo's Civil Administration, the names of the streets are changed and the Jardín Ocampo (Ocampo Garden) becomes the Jardín Pípila (Pípila Garden).

During the 30's and 40's of the last century, there was a first statue of the Dolores’ Unknown Insurgent on the center of the plaza - very similar to the one there today - made out of limestone representing an unknown soldier born in this patriotic town, who joins the libertarian movement of Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla; remembering that the first Army of Mexico marched on this Jalisco Street. Vox populi started to associate the name of this garden to the mighty Pípila, and this small plaza the "Jardín Chiquito" (Small Garden), comparing it wih the Jardín Independencia (Independence Garden), Armament Plaza or Main Plaza which the city already had one.

The September 16th, 1950, the Unknown Insurgent's statue is inaugurated.
