The conference in Dolores, Hidalgo with the Governor and all the Casas in the U.S. was held last Friday September 15th. Governor Romero Hicks in the middle with the glasses, and on his left is the incoming Governor Juan Manuel Oliva.


When the conference ended there was a ceremony with revolutionaries on horse back presenting the Mexican Flag to the Governor. There were runners carrying a torch. They ran into the square and presented the torch to the Governor to light a flame in the town square. That night "the grito" was celebrated at 11 p.m. all over Mexico.
