By: Margarita Pérez García

Born into slavery in 1790, Juana Ramírez dreamt of a more egalitarian society for mixed-race, Indigenous, and Black people. Juana hoped to join in the fight for independence against the Spanish Empire, but women were merely companions of men who were going to war. At the age of 15, she joined the fight and led an all-women artillery unit. Did Juana live to see her dream of freedom come true?
