The event that marks the beginning of the Mexican war of Independence.

Uttered from a small town of Dolores near Guanajuato on September 16th, 1810. Since 1825, the anniversary of the event is celebrated as Mexican Independence Day (which is usually confused with 5 de Mayo - the battle against Puebla.)

Since the late 20th Century, Hidalgo and Costilla’s ‘Grito’ has become emblematic of Mexico Independence. Each year on September 15th at around 11pm, the President of Mexico rings the bell of National Palace in Mexico City. After ringing the bell, he states the ‘Cry of Dolores’ (translated)

Mexicans!

Long live the heroes that gave us the Fatherland!

Long live Hidalgo!

Long live Morelos!

Long live Josefa Ortiz de Dominguez!

Long live Allende!

Long live Galena and the Bravos!

Long live Aldama and Matamoros!

Long live National Independence!

Long Live Mexico! Long Live Mexico! Long Live Mexico!

Here is the clip of this years celebration!!
