Father Hidalgo
By Cathy Pearl

1     Father Hidalgo was born on May 3, 1753. He lived a simple life and had no idea that one day he would be called the Father of Mexico.
2     When he was twenty, he received a degree in theology. Soon he was ordained a priest. His life as a priest was not easy. He did not agree with many things that he was supposed to do. He would read books he was not supposed to. His last job was a priest in a little town called Dolores.
3     He worked hard for the people in that town. He learned the language of the people who lived there. He also tried to teach them new skills. The town and the people were very poor and he was trying to help them. One of the skills was winemaking. This was not legal. Soldiers came and destroyed the vines.
