Regarding First Celebration of the Mexican Independence Proclamation. These markers celebrate a relatively little known historical incident: that during the Mexican War for Independence, the leaders of the Insurgency paused here on the second anniversary of the Proclamation of Independence given on September 16, 1810 by Miguel Hidalgo to celebrate that beginning and to dedicate themselves to the ongoing struggle for liberty and freedom. Full independence from Spain would not happen for another nine years in 1821.
