Miguel Hidalgo

Don Miguel Hidalgo is often considered the father of Mexican independence from Spain. Of pure Spanish criollo descent, Hidalgo was a priest in a small town in central Mexico. Alerted of discovery of his revolutionary plot by his sometime lover La Corregidora[?], he gave the Grito de Dolores which touched off a peasant revolt in 1811.
