Vicente Guerrero was convinced by Morelos to join the independence movement. After several battles reached the rank of colonel He was clever and military, but his tenacity as a guerrilla did much to keep alive the struggle for independence until 1821. Guerrero independence war moved to the mountains of the province he had known since childhood.
The triumph of the liberal revolution in Spain Rafael de Riego in México in 1820 triggered a conspiracy, called “Profesa”. This conspiracy seeking to avoid the application of the Spanish liberal constitution of 1812, and was led by large landowners, Spanish traders and Catholic Church hierarchy. The rich also wanted independence.
January 21, 1821 the final battle occured between independence (Guerrero) and realistic (Iturbide).
On February 24 the army together made trigarante (or all three warranty: Catholic Religion, Independence from Mexico to Spain, and Union between the sides of the war.).
Vicente Guerrero named Agustín de Iturbide Trigarante Army commander, and together they defeated the Spanish army in August 1821. Signed with the last viceroy, Juan O’Donojú, the Treaty of Córdoba, which gave independence to México. Guerrero and Iturbide triumphantly entered México City on September 27, 1821, ending a struggle of 11 years, and the next day they signed the Declaration of Independence.
Today  México is far from black and white in politics. Instead of a steady party or parties even within the grand parties there are serious fractures. The rich get richer, the poor get poorer, jobs are tough to keep And pay poorly and well graduated young Mexicans head for the states or Europe or traveling…to see…before they settle down.National parties still use the young and brave and innocent for new blood and new fodder. We have much, badly distributed, the color of u your skin and the brand of your jeans still count more in the eyes of society than the wonderful ideas and dreams you would like to share. Now there is an intellectual revolution….each man to his own liking and it just might be a good thing

Until tomorrow: That was just the beginning. The struggle to pull together different frentes  and opinions and sooth past rough passages on the road to freedom took years.
