Cortes and Mexico

On the 500th anniversary of the Spanish conquest of Mexico, people from Mexico's smallest state Tlaxcala say their ancestors were liberators.

Some historians are revisiting "the accusation of treachery, arguing that Tlaxcalans and other city states were in fact fighting a war of liberation against the oppressive Mexica (as the Aztecs were known)." Interesting history.
