    I wouldn’t call repeating historical information plagiarizing. If that’s the case, the whole world plagiarizes.

    Repeating a historical account verbatim, rather than the information, is plagiarism, marg.

    The fact that someone of that age was interested in history enough to look that up, memorize the facts, and then write an entry on it really should count for something. So, yes, dear, you CAN quote yourself.

    If a child that age wrote the entry, it makes me wonder just how accurate the articles in Wikipedia really are.

    Authors still have to cite their own work.

    Anyway, got to love Wiki, it’s a good first source for information. Just back up what you’ve read with more reliable sources.

    Thank you explaining that Gracie. Many people believe that today is Mexican Independence Day, and that is incorrect. Mexican Independence Day is on September 16th.

    On the nail, green-engineer–since Wiki is “open editable”, I have made more than a few corrections (grammar, context, consistency…).

    Fantastic! The teacher has to verify what the student says with wikipedia.

    More likely, Gracie plagiarized the information from the google via the Internet. LOLs!

Mexican Independence Day is on September 16th Carmy, I think Cinco de Mayo celebrated after Mexican and French battled in the war. ?;-/ (the question mark is above my head.) Mexican Independence Day on Sept 16th was that they wanted to disconnect from Spain. I just checked the information from the google via the Internet.

    For Wildmustang1262, 1810/09/16 was the day that Father Hidalgo called for severance from Spain–which only recognised that they had lost Mexico only on 1821/09/27 (technically, the latter could be considered Mexican Independence Day, but see below).

    An analogous situation is that of Bangladesh, whose people (after winning an election, which was suppressed) declared themselves severed from Pakistan on 1971/03/26–Bangladesh official Independence Day is commemorated on 03/26 each year, despite of actual liberation from Pakistan’s misrule only being achieved 1971/12/16 (which is termed “Liberation Day” in Bangladesh).

    Interestingly, the French Foreign Legion is also supposed to claim Puebla as a battle honor, because they fought well. Not very often that both sides claim a battle as an honor.
