Cinco De Mayo is commonly mistaken to be a celebration of Mexican independence, but it actually honors the Battle of Puebla in 1862. While Cinco De Mayo is a minor holiday in Mexico, the 5th of May has become a way for those in the United States to celebrate all things Mexican and Mexican-Americans.
