What is a Caste system? .

Hispanic conquistadores married young iindigenous woman to their settlers in order to make sure the cultural erasure and status quo stayed for each generation following spanish conquest the nex generation would ggrow up in households that had a Spanish father (adult) with a young indigenous mother. Resulting in a race based social caste.

The Spanish Empire adopted a Casta System to classify all of the Americas' various races and racial combinations, as well as where Spaniards were born. Similar to medieval Spain's concept of limpieza de sangre, or blood purity, the Casta System linked one's race with his or her behavior, personality, and social status.

Two schools of thought

Conservatives Versus LIberals

Liberals

The liberals wanted to copy the reform governments like the United States and France

Conservatives

The conservatives wanted Mexico to exist the same way it had during the Colonial Era, with its support for the Church and landed economic system

Policies

Conservatives sided with the Church and mercantilism while Liberals sided with the French revolution that wanted to end these privileges for the elite and wanted to modernize the economy.

What was going on in Spain?

End?

A group of liberals staged a successful revolt in 1820. This revolt forced the king of Spain to make changes. The conservatives in Spain started to think twice about all of their choices. Many conservatives joined forces with Father Hidalgo’s followers to defeat Spanish troops. These conservatives were more concerned with reinstating their rights.
