Independence Day is celebrated in Mexico on 16th September. It commemorates the day, on 16th September 1810 in the small town of Dolores, in the province of Guanajuato in Mexico, when a handful of people were summoned by a parish priest to take up arms against the Spanish colonial government - the Viceroyalty of New Spain. Thus began the fight for independence that ended 350 years of Spanish rule.
To this day, the church bell that was used to call people to revolt hangs in the National Palace in Mexico City and is rung on the eve of 16th September each year by the President of Mexico.
