The Cry of Dolores was the battle cry for the Mexican War of Independence that occurred during the early morning of September 16th, 1810. Mexico, back then known as New Spain, was under the control of Spain and trying to reclaim their independence. Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla was a Roman Catholic priest that initiated the Mexican War of Independence. He rang the bell of his church and commanded the call-to-arms that triggered the people of Dolores to revolt against Spanish control. His speech to his fellow citizens is known today as the Cry of Dolores.
