Corozale├▒os, including dignitaries and citizens, were out in force on Wednesday, September 10, to commemorate and pay homage to the Baymen, our forefathers, who fought off the final attempt of the Spaniards to take Belize. The few stalwart loyalists voted to fight or surrender, and though the vote to fight was a majority but not unanimous, the fight was unanimous! And we have them to thank today for their efforts so many years ago, in 1798. And we honor them!
