Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla (short bio)

Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla also known in Mexico as the Father of the Nation and leader of the War of Independence of Mexico will be portrayed in a 12 minute monologue, in Spanish, by actor Pedro Garcia on Pharr Community Theater’s FB page, live, on September 15, 2020 at 9:00 pm. Free.

Don Miguel Gregorio Antonio Francisco Ignacio Hidalgo-Costilla y Gallaga Mandarte Villaseñor (May 8, 1753 – July 30, 1811), better known as Don Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla or Miguel Hidalgo was a Spanish Roman Catholic priest, leader of the War of Independence of Mexico and recognized as the Father of the Nation.

He was a professor at the Colegio de San Nicolás Obispo in Valladolid and was dismissed in 1792. He served in a church in Colima and later in Dolores. After his arrival, he was shocked by the rich land he had found. He tried to help the poor by showing them how to grow olives and grapes, but in New Spain (modern Mexico) the authorities discouraged or prohibited the cultivation of these crops to avoid competition with imports from Spain. In 1810 he delivered the famous “Grito de Dolores” speech, in which he asked the people to protect the interests of their King Fernando VII by rebelling against the European-born Spaniards who had overthrown the Spanish viceroy.

He marched through Mexico and assembled an army of nearly 90,000 poor Mexican farmers and civilians who attacked and killed both the peninsular Spanish elites and the Creoles, despite the fact that Hidalgo’s troops were untrained and poorly armed. These troops encountered an army of 6,000 well-trained and armed Spanish soldiers; most of Hidalgo’s troops fled or died in the Battle of Puente Calderón. After the battle, Hidalgo and his remaining troops fled north, but Hidalgo was betrayed, captured, and executed.
