Why is the 25 de Mayo celebrated in Argentina?

There are two important dates around Argentina’s independence from Spain; 9 de Julio which is the day Independence was declared and the 25 de Mayo which is when the first local government was established in Buenos Aires in 1810. 25 de Mayo is known as The May Revolution (Revolución de Mayo) or Revolution Day (El día de la Revolución).
