El Salvador History

The area was originally called by the Pipil Cuzhcatl"

in Spanish ""Cuzcatlan""

which in Nahuatl means ""the land of precious things."""""

In the early sixteenth century, the Spanish conquistadors ventured into ports to extend their dominion to the area. They called the land Provincia De Nuestro Seor Jesucristo El Salvador Del Mundo"

which was subsequently abbreviated to ""El Salvador""."""

Towards the end of 1810, a combination of internal and external factors allowed Central American elites to attempt to gain independence from the Spanish crown. The internal factors were mainly the interest the elites had in controlling the territories they owned without involvement from Spanish authorities. The external factors were the success of the French and American revolutions in the eighteenth century and the weakening of the military power of the Spanish crown because of its wars against Napoleonic France. The independence movement was consolidated on November 5, 1811, when the Salvadoran priest, Jose Matias Delgado, sounded the bells of the Iglesia La Merced in San Salvador, making a call for the insurrection. After many years of internal fights, the Acta de Independencia of Central America was signed in Guatemala on September 15, 1821. When these provinces were joined with Mexico in early 1822, El Salvador resisted, insisting on autonomy for the Central American countries.After minor battles the resistances was recognised in forming a new counrty.
