Trivia The closing scene showing Father Christopher's death was based on the story of San Cristobal Magallanes Jara, who was falsely accused of promoting the rebellion and was then executed without trial. His last words to his executioners were "I die innocent, and ask God that my blood may serve to unite my Mexican brethren." See more »
