See full description & specifications

In the Plaza Civica in the historic city of San Miguel de Allende in the central highlands of Guanajuato, Mexico, is a bronze statue of General Ignacio Allende on horseback.  He led the first revolt of the Mexican fight for independence from the Spanish empire in 1809.  From this heartland of Mexico and its national identity, is a rich colonial period from the mid 15th thru the 19th centuries,   He is heroically depicted in battle on a war horse with a single front leg raised, as well as his sword, ready to defend and die. The story of his death, however, was not actually during a battle, rather he was captured by the Spanish army and died a prisoner,  According to the European tradition of erecting bronze statues of leaders and significant men on horseback, which was continued in many European colonies well into the 20th century, if the virtuous man depicted did actually die in battle, then at least 2 legs and hooves of the horses were off the ground. If only one is raised as in this statue of Allende, it is understood he fought and was injured in battles, but did not die in one.
