Insurgents: Miguel Hidalgo, Jose Maria Morelos, Francisco Javier Mina, Vicente Guerrero, Guadalupe Victoria.
Spanish colonial commanders: Francisco Xavier Venegas, Ignacio Elizondo, Juan Ruiz de Apodaca, Felix Maria Calleja del Rey.
A special mention would be Agustin de Iturbide, who at first was supreme commander of the Spanish colonial forces and later switched sides, thus helping the Insurgents winning the war of independence.
Miguel Hidalgo was the first man to fight for Mexico's independence. He fought for 2 years then was captured and decapitated. The second man to fight was Jose. He fought for 4 years and then died. The last man to fight and win Mexico's independence was Augustus de Iturbide. He originally was on the side of Spain who was fighting against Mexico at the time but suddnely thought "Hey, if I win these guys independence…
It didn't; at least not directly. Haiti was a French colony in the Caribbean, while Mexico was considered a territory of the Spanish Crown.
