It is common for many Americans to mistake Cinco de Mayo (May 5) as Mexican Independence Day. It was actually in September of 1821 that Mexico finally won its independence from Spain.

September 16 is the date officially recognized by Mexico as her independence day. Cinco de Mayo celebrates a victory over the French in 1862.
