The Final Battle
We have defeated the Aztecs! Tear down every temple, home, and market. Today is no longer about Tenochtitlan but NEW SPAIN!
75 days later...
June 20, 1520, the Spanish tried to escape at night unnoticed. Unfortunately, they were ambushed by the Aztec to which many died. Therefore, the night is refered to sd the Noche Triste, or Sorrowful Night.
The Spanish and the Tlaxcalan retreated for five months. During that five months, Aztec began dying of small pox, which the Spanish brought from Europe.
Almost half of the Aztec were left with no allies and half of them dead due to the small pox. Cortes regrouped with his allies and attacked. Being an intelligent man, Cortes blocked off the causeways, canals, and aqueducts, so no fresh water or food would enter the city. The Aztec stood for 75 days, but eventually the Spanish won and destroyed the city. In 1522, Cortes became the governor and captain-general for New Spain.
