On November 10, 1821 the residents of Azuero declared their independence from the Spanish Empire. Their act was met with disdain in the capital of Panama, that is why the local authorities were forced to accelerate their own plans. Soon after the citizens of Panama City also declared their independence from Spain. This event took place on November 28, 1821.
