On the third Monday of July each year, Puerto Ricans take the time to remember the Birthday of Luis Muñoz Rivera, a well respected and influential figure in the history of this island nation.
Don Luis Muñoz Rivera (1859–1916) was a poet, journalist and politician, and it was in this role that he tirelessly advocated independence first from Spain, and later from the United States. He was also the father of Luis Muñoz Marín, who went on to become the first governor of Puerto Rico to be elected democratically.
