The Life and Times of Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla

Excerpt from The Life and Times of Miguel Hidalgo Y Costilla The celebration this year in Mexico of the centennial of the Grito de Dolores has caused those who are interested in Mexican affairs to ask: What was the Grito de Dolores? and who was Hidalgo, that he should be called the Father of Mexican Independence? The answers to these questions that may be obtained from general histories are thoroughly inadequate and wholly unsatisfying at this period, when Mexico is receiving universal attention. Such histories present Hidalgo in the light of an insurrectionist, a fanatic perhaps, who had the temerity to lead a revolt against the regularly constituted Government of one of the Spanish dependencies in America, and whose public career was ended by the defeat of his cause and his own death within a year. They fail to show any relation between his insurrectionary movement and the establishment of a wholly factitious Mexican Independence eleven years later; nor do they reveal a relationship with constitutional government in Mexico, and the rise of a self-conscious commonwealth to a respected place among the nations of the earth.
