CUSTER COUNTY–Today is Cinco de Mayo, a day in which many people in the United States celebrate Mexican heritage and indulge in delicious food like tacos and margaritas. History.com provides some background into the day which is also known as Battle of Puebla Day.
“Cinco de Mayo, or the fifth of May, is a holiday that celebrates the date of the Mexican army’s May 5, 1862 victory over France at the Battle of Puebla during the Franco-Mexican War. The day, which falls on Tuesday, May 5 in 2020, is also known as Battle of Puebla Day. While it is a relatively minor holiday in Mexico, in the United States, Cinco de Mayo has evolved into a commemoration of Mexican culture and heritage, particularly in areas with large Mexican-American populations.” Source: https://www.history.com/topics/holidays/cinco-de-mayo
