Mexican, August 10, 1782 – February 14, 1831,
Born in Tixtla

Mexico's First Black Indian President

"Vicente Guerrero was the foremost surviving military hero of Mexico’s wars of independence, and one of the few great figures who had fought for independence throughout the entire period of 1810 to 1821, when many other military and political leaders changed sides repeatedly. He served with distinction in the first two governments of independent Mexico, and then in 1829 became the second president of the republic." [Project Muse: See D]
