If this is really that bad please tell, so we won't waste time with it.
December 1810 to July 1811
As planned by Hidalgo and his generals, the first army of Mexico began its march toward Mexico to rescue the threatened capital. The force of 6.000 soldiers was slowed by the hard landscape of the central plateau, and when they finally arrived in sight of the Mexico valley the battle was already raging in the suburbs of the capital.
The local garrison of 1.000 was supported by two hundreds of peasents armed with anything than could delay the Spanish. The arrival of Hidalgo took the colonial troops in a bad situation, as they where now trapped between the city full of militas and the rebel army. The Spanish general decided to abandon the battle and to return to Acapulco in the hope of further reimforciments from the motherland.
In the southeast of the capital, a lone regiment sucessfully liberated the province of Tlaxcala. Even if its unlikely than a thousend of men can defend the entire region the control of the rich city will provide the rebels with desesperatly needed funds.
Mexico at the begining of the new year 1811
Decided to fully exploit its small victory, Miguel Hidalgo continued his march forward to the Pacific. The garrison city of Acapuclo was his target, its strategical importance making it a key point to control. The remnents of the army than first attacked Mexico city in December putted a mediocre fight against Hidalgo's troops as they where harassed by local militas during their retreat.
The siege of Acapulco begins with an assault against its walls
The fierce attack against the coastal city cleared about 9/10 of the defenders of the city, the rest protected it fanatically, preventing the tired Mexicans to enter. Hidalgo resigned himself to begin a long siege.
In the North, the Spanish colonial forces regrouped themself quickly. They decided to seize the rebel capital whatever the cost, and started their 2nd attack against the city. The defenders of the city where surprised by the assault, but putted a good fight against the Spanish forces. Some soldiers even repported than the king of Spain himself, the brother of Napoléon, was leading his troops from the mountains surrounding the capital. Even if it was the case, he had not the great military skills of his brother. The invasion force was beaten without Hidalgo's troops.
The 2nd Battle of Mexico
Did Napoleon's brother Joseph really led the Spanish troops?
The 7 of April, Acapulco was liberated by Hidalgo. The general-priest latter led his army toward Mexico again as a third wave of Spanish troops was in sight of the capital.
Another battle for Mexico city, another Spanish defeat.
A few days after, several provinces of Central America declared an open rebellion against their old rulers. Supported by the governors of the British colonies of Belize and Mosquito, the local population raised a small corp to liberate the region. In the late days of June, the Mexican revolutionaries where controling all the Pacific coast from Mazatlán to Panama, where the borders of Mexico reached thoses of the young republic of Colombia, also fighting for its independence on the exemple of its northern neighbour.

Colombia is giving a good fight against the Spanish. Even if we can't do anything to help them, we wish them best of luck.
