Don Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla
Tras la victoria en el monte de Las Cruces, Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla decidió no tomar la capital de la Nueva España y regresar al pueblo de Dolores.

En el camino hacia Dolores, El Padre de la Patria y su ejército llegaron a Aculco el 5 de noviembre de 1810. La mañana del 7 de noviembre se enfrentarían a Félix María Calleja en la batalla de Aculco, sufriendo su primera derrota.

Tras el enfrentamiento, el cura Hidalgo ofició misa en al árbol conocido por la comunidad como “Palo Bendito”, an acción de gracias por conservar la vida en tan cruenta batalla.

El Bulevar Bicentenario “Miguel Hidalgo” forma parte de la Ruta de la Independencia, pues sigue al mismo camino que tomó Hidalgo en su retorno al pueblo de Dolores.
