Our Lady of Guadalupe - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (3229 words)
In 1810 Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla initiated the bid for Mexican independence with his Grito de Dolores, when he yelled words to the effect of "Death to the Spaniards and long live the Virgin of Guadalupe!" (the exact phrasing is widely debated).
When Hidalgo's mestizo-indigenous army attacked Guanajuato and Valladolid, it was written that they had placed "the image of the Virgin of Guadalupe, which was the insignia of their enterprise, on sticks or on reeds painted different colors" and that "they all wore a print of the Virgin on their hats" (Krauze 1997).
When Hidalgo died, leadership of the revolution fell to a mestizo priest named Jose Maria Morelos who led insurgent troops in the Mexican south.
