Mexican Independence Day
By Cathy Pearl
  

1     Mexico has not always been a free country. It had to fight to get its freedom like the United States did. Today, Mexico celebrates its independence.
 
2     Spain ruled Mexico for many years. This started when Columbus discovered the new land and claimed it for Spain. Spain was excited about this land. They sent men over to look for gold and silver.
 
3     At that time the Aztecs were in charge. Spain sent an army and attacked them. In 1521, the last Aztec ruler was captured. The land was now under Spanish control. Spain named it New Spain. Spain ruled the land for almost three hundred years.
