Revolutionary proclamation issued in the final stage of the Mexican War of Independence from Spain.
The Plan of Iguala also known as The Plan of the Three Guarantees ("Plan Trigarante"), was a revolutionary proclamation promulgated on 24 February 1821, in the final stage of the Mexican War of Independence from Spain. It sealed the alliance of two groups - the insurgents under Vicente Guerrero and Guadalupe Victoria with the regular army under the command of a former Spanish lieutenant, Agustin de Iturbde. The Plan praised the work of Spain in the Americas but argued that Mexico was prepared for self-government under a constitutional monarchy and provided that Catholicism would be the religion of the nation, the Creoles and those born in Spain would be treated the same way, and a new army was to be created.
