Father Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla, was also known as Miguel Hidalgo. He was a Mexican priest and was a leader from the Mexican War of Independence. When he showed up in Dolores, Mexico, he was suprised to see the poverty level they were on. To try to help this problem, he taught the poor how to grow grapes and olives. To honor him, the towns' people re-named the small town as Dolores Hidalgo Cuna de la Independencia Nacional, or Dolores Hidalgo for short. & http://www.mexconnect.com/articles/291-miguel-hidalgo-the-father-who-fathered-a-country-
