On the morning of this Wednesday, March 16, the Mayor's Office of the Citizen Power of Managua, through the Directorate of Historical Heritage, paid honor and glory to the memory of General José Dolores Estrada Vado, on the occasion of commemorating the 230th anniversary of his birth.
This activity was chaired by the Mayor of Managua, Reyna Rueda Alvarado, who placed a floral offering at the foot of the National Hero monument located on the Tiscapa overpass and highlighted the legacy of Division General José Dolores Estrada.
Clemente Guido Martínez, Director of Municipal Historical Heritage, highlighted that General José Dolores Estrada, in addition to having defended the freedom of Nicaraguans in the heroic Battle of San Jacinto against the filibusters, also defended the constitutional president Fernando Guzmán, who was facing war against Generals Máximo Jerez and Tomás Martínez in 1869, when they tried to overthrow him militarily.
General José Dolores Estrada was born on March 16, 1792 and died a natural death on August 12, 1869. Being Chief of the Army, his legacy remains alive in Nicaraguans, for being the maximum defender of the Political Constitution of Nicaragua and the System Democratic, against any attempt to usurp the rights of the people to decide their own destiny.
At the end of the ceremony, the Municipal Band performed interpretations of military pieces.
