Hey, I"m not sure if this was the right place to ask, but why did Mexico wanted to be free from rule from Spain? Any details?

Because

$$\Gamma^l_{ki} = \frac{1}{2} g^{lj} (\partial_k g_{ij} + \partial_i g_{jk} - \partial_j g_{ki})$$

How could you miss that ?!?!

No this is probably not the best place to ask. Try General Discussion, or even Politics and World Affairs.
