A Brief History of Mexican victory against Spain: 

By 1810, Spain had ruled Mexico since 1521. Wars with Native Americans erupted and were suppressed brutally. A rigid caste system developed. Only Spaniards born in Spain could hold high-level government posts. On September 16, 1810, Father Don Miguel Gregorio Antonio Ignacio Hidalgo y Costilla y Gallaga Mandarte Villaseñor, a Roman Catholic Priest in the village of Dolores, rang his church bell, assembled the inhabitants of the town, and issued the Grito de Delores, the Cry of Delores, a call to rise and fight for independence.
