Metro Guerrero

Désolé, cet article est seulement disponible en Anglais Américain et Espagnol Mexicain.

The neighborhood of Guerrero took its name during a period when Mexican President Porfiro Díaz was consolidating control of the country at the end of the 19th century. Born in 1782, the General, Vicente Guerrero came from Tixtla in the state whose name was also later changed in his honor. Guerrero secured important victories during the struggle with the Spanish. The alarm among the Spanish led to appeals by the Viceroy of New Spain trying to convince Guerrero to abandon the struggle. Guerrero's famous reply was "The Homeland Comes First." He served as President of newly Independent Mexico briefly in 1828, but lost power in a coup that same year. He retired to the south but was assassinated in Oaxaca in 1831. The state of Guerrero was renamed in his honor just two years later.
