After sunrise on September 16, 1810, Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla's life would never be the same. But who was Hidalgo, really? A brilliant theologian, a priest who occupied himself with charitable works, a caring father figure among the Indians, an intellectually curious man with an ear for music who was active in the arts, Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla suffered from economic duress caused by the imposition of Bourbon reforms. After the priest from Dolores cried out for liberty, the last few months of his life would begin, sealing his fate and that of an entire nation.
