    The War Band "Guards of Honor" was in charge of directing the Honors to the Flag and the intonation of the National Anthem, a solemn act that had the outstanding participation of students and directors of the Technological University of San Miguel de Allende, who participated with the reading of the ephemeris of the month and the Pledge of Allegiance.

    The councilor of the H. City Council, Felipe Tapia, was in charge of sharing with the attendees the historical review of the commemorated event: “we meet to remember the heroic defense of the Castle of Chapultepec by the Niños Héroes on September 13, 1847, during the invasion of the US Army in the vicinity of Mexico City," he said.

    "History keeps a very special memory, they bravely gave their lives, they were courageous young people who set an example for citizens to follow and who mark the national calendar" he added.SMA Government (sp) | English.
