Then he set forth across Mexico, gathering almost 90,000 Mexican civilians and poor farmers. Although he had a large army, his army wasn't trained well and was barely armed. One day, Hidalgo's army found themselves running into a clan of 6,000 Spanish troops that were well armed and trained. A lot of Hidalgo's army fled or got killed, Hidalgo was executed by a Spanish firing squad on July 30, 1811.
