Summary
This overview will help students understand the history and importance of the Mexican holiday Cinco de Mayo. Part one explains that Cinco de Mayo is not Mexico's independence day, as is often assumed, but rather the anniversary of the Mexican defeat of an invading French army in 1862, a day that has come to signify freedom and independence to the Mexican people. Part two provides background about the Mexican Civil War and subsequent French invasion of Mexico, explaining why the Mexican army's victory over the French invaders helped end France's colonial ambitions in North America and prevented the French from intervening in the American Civil War. The last part examines the parades, activities, music, food, and arts and crafts that are integral parts of Cinco de Mayo celebrations in both the U.S. and Mexico. All three segments emphasize the significance of the holiday's theme of freedom, and its importance in fostering good relations and better understanding between the U.S. and Mexico. Visuals include vintage art and illustrations and footage of contemporary Cinco de Mayo celebrations
