Regarding Ignacio Pérez. Ignacio Pérez was one of a small group of conspirators in Querétaro that wanted to promote Mexican Independence against Spanish rule. On September 14, 1810 he carried a message from fellow conspirator Josefa Ortíz Domínguez (the "Corregidora" or "Magistrate's Wife") to Ignacio Allende and Miguel Hidalgo in Dolores, Guanajuato. This act kept many of the conspirators there from being captured by the Spanish and prompted Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla to give his famous declaration of independence called the Grito de Dolores (Cry of Dolores) on September 16, 1810. This date is now considered to be the beginning of Mexican independence.
