Storyboard Text

  • Inequality was a big problem in New Spain. The people were mistreated and exploited. 
  • The creoles, mestizos, natives and slaves were looked down upon, were mistreated, had less opportunities and were overall abused.
  • Meanwhile, the peninsulars (Spanish people born in Spain), had land, money, and power.
  • The people were unhappy with this mistreatment. Conspiracies were held in Queretaro to plan a war for independence.
  • Some of the conspirators were Miguel Hidalgo, Ignacio Allende and Josefa Ortiz de Dominguez
  • Because the conspiracies were discovered, the Independence was started sooner than planned.
  • In the early of morning of the 16th of September of 1810, Hidalgo gave the call to arms, triggering the Mexican War for Independence.
