Brilliant to see you add this Tony , I’ve been thinking of adding a couple of the revolutionary monuments in DF myself.

One piece of constructive criticism regarding the post , among the revolutionary figures you listed you forgot the Irishman William Lamport/ Don Guillén de Lampart , whose statue (which portrays him in his last moments before being burned at the stake by the Spaniards) is in the monument. He was perhaps Mexico’s first revolutionary/ independence figure and no doubt an interesting albeit very strange historical figure , people say he inspired the legend of “El Zorro”.
