THE SOCIETY OF THE GUADALUPES

The struggle for independence, was supported by many secrete groups. One of the first, was the Eagle Society, after it was renamed the Society of the Guadalupes and had a great quantity of followers in the society from the capital. Many women elaborated sales and clothes for the soldiers and merchants contributed with guns and supplies. A transcendental action of this society was to provide the necessary to publish the news of the liberation. Jose Maria Coss, in the lack of a printing machine, had made some rustic types of wood and with them he printed “the American Illustrator” that made the voice of the emancipation be heard anywhere. The Society of the Guadalupes became aware of the problems Coss faced but sending a printing machine was impossible because besides having a large volume; it had to pass through the Realists first so it could get to the Liberators.

Nonetheless, Mrs. De Raz Guzman and Mrs. Del Rio accepted the challenge: they left in a car separately, one with the box for typing and the other with the printing box. The distinguished ladies were able to cross the Realist area and nobody became aware that under the enormous and showy wardrobe and luxurious tapestry, traveled the instrument that would gain more followers to the creole cause.
