Trinidad remained in Spanish hands until 1797, but it was largely settled by French colonists. In 1889 the two islands were incorporated into a single crown colony. Trinidad and Tobago obtained self-governance in 1958 and independence from the British Empire in 1962. It became a republic in 1976. The Author V. S. Naipaul (1932~, ) is a Trinidadian novelist and essayist of Indo-Trinidadian descent. He is widely considered to be one of the masters of modern English prose.

Miguel Gregorio Antonio Ignacio Hidalgo y Costilla Gallaga Mandarte Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla es, para la mayoría del pueblo mexicano, el “héroe” más significativo durante el proceso de independencia. Ya sea por lo aprendido en la escuela o por lo enseñado por nuestros padres, este individuo pasó a la historia de México como una persona de rectitud envidiable y valor intachable. Pero, ¿fue realmente la persona que idolatramos como pueblo? Comúnmente pensamos que murió a sangre fría y sin consideración a manos del ejército realista. Lo que la mayoría de la gente no conoce es sobre el proceso militar y eclesiástico al que fue sujeto. Mismo proceso que nos disponemos a comentar. Antes que nada, es necesario aclarar que este no es un estudio sobre la independencia de México o sobre el movimiento insurgente durante el mando del Cura de Dolores. Tampoco es una explicación sobre la lucha armada entre el ejército insurgente y el realista. Y menos es un artículo sobre las causas de la independencia de México. Simple y sencillamente, es un comentario sobre el proceso militar contra el Miguel Hidalgo. No más, no menos.
