May 5, Cinco de Mayo and National Hoagie Day

Cinco de Mayo (fifth of May) commemorates the Mexican army's 1862 victory over France at the Battle of Puebla during the Franco-Mexican War. In the United States Cinco de Mayo has evolved into a celebration of Mexican culture, heritage, and foods. On June 7, 2005, the U.S. Congress issued a Resolution to observe Cinco de Mayo with appropriate ceremonies and festivities.
