The first exhibition to explore the Civil War roots of this American holiday, Cinco de Mayo: Latinos in California Respond to the Civil War provides new insight into the experience of Latinos in the newly formed U.S. State of California.

Inspired by Dr. David Hayes-Bautista's newest book, Cinco de Mayo: An American Tradition from University of California Press, this exhibition examines previously little-known connections between the historical events of the time and the unique American holiday of Cinco de Mayo. This exhibition features photography, newspaper articles, and objects of the period.

LA Plaza is open noon to 7pm, Wednesday through Monday. Closed Tuesdays, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year's Day.

Sponsored by: This exhibition is presented in partnership with the Center for the Study of Latino Health and Culture, David Geffen School of Medicine, UCLA and Unión de Pobladores en El Exterior (UPEXT)
