The Independence Of Panama
Where did he fit in History?By 1821, much of Central America had declared independence from Spain. The calls across Panama for independence were spreading and small rebellions and groups of patriots were popping up all over Panama. Colonel José de Fábrega called the patriots to Panama City on November 20, 1821. Here he held a meeting to discuss the future of Panama. The meeting ended with the request of the consultation of all the people of the provinces to coordinate the revolution and the open showing of unity and want for independence. Then, on November 28, José de Fábrega proclaimed the Independence of Panama from Spain and the union of the Panamanian nation to the already independent nation of Colombia. Once Panama became completely independent from Spain and was accepted by Colombia, José de Fábrega was appointed governor and commander of the province of Panama and later promoted to brigadier general by Simon Bolivar, president of Colombia . Even after independence, on both the battlefield and government office, Fábrega contributed to the birth of Panama as an independent and it's own nation.
