These were his relatives and friends, the workers of local factories and several residents of Dolores - only about three dozen people. At the head of this small group Hidalgo went to prison and freed the prisoners immediately joined the squad. Then the rebels moved to the barracks, where the seized weapons. After that, they arrested colonial officials and other representatives of the Spanish elite. At 5 am Hidalgo told to hit the bell and the church porch addressed the crowd with inspirational slogan “Independence and the death of the Spaniards!”, Went down in history under the name “Cry of Dolores”.

His call responded to hundreds of people: the people of Dolores and nearby villages, dozens of soldiers. The same morning Hidalgo led his column in the Mexico City. She is joined by peasants and hacienda villages lying along the path of movement, the miners and the poor. The rebels were armed mainly peaks, machetes, clubs, slingshots, bows. Only a few had guns.

By order of the Viceroy Francisco Javier Venegas in Mexico were concentrated military units from other cities, the garrisons of San Luis Potosi and Guadalajara are given in full combat readiness. September 27th Viceroy appointed a high cash reward for the head of Hidalgo and other leaders of the uprising.
