The Abolition of slavery in Mexico

President Guerrero, who signed the decree


No significant slave trade to Mexico had existed since 1739.

 

On December 6, 1810 Father Hidalgo proclaimed the abolition of slavery in  Mexico.  Later, when José María Morelos assumed command of the revolution he repeated Father Hidalgo's decree on January 29, 1813

 

In 1829 President Guerrero signed a decree abolishing slavery.

 

However, peonage still continued.
