Mexican Independence Day

Mexican War of Independence (1810-1821), was an armed conflict between the people of Mexico and Spanish colonial authorities, which started on September 16, 1810. The Mexican War of Independence movement was led by Mexican-born Spaniards, Mestizos, Zambos and Amerindians who sought independence from Spain. It started as an idealistic peasants' rebellion against their colonial masters, but finally ended as an unlikely alliance between "liberales" (liberals) and "conservadores" (conservatives). And that's all that Wikipedia has to say about that event. To find out more, do some research. We have collected some search engines for you if you are weary of Googling.

And like with all such events, we party and we celebrate. Fundraisers and dinners are appropriate occasions for conversation, exchange of ideas, and learning from each other.
