Hidalgo was captured and executed in 1811 , but others picked up the struggle and Miguel Hidalgo is considered the father of the country to this day. Miguel was an unlikely revolutionary. well into his 50’s he became a parish priest and noted theologian with no real history of insubordination.Inside the quiet priest beat the heart of a rebel , however , and on september 16, 1810 he took to the pulpit in the town of Dolores and demanded that the people take up arms and free their nation.
