Cinco de Mayo as an anti-Confederate holiday.

The following video on YouTube is a fascinating lecture by Dr. David Hayes-Bautista of the University of California - Los Angeles about Cinco de Mayo.

Dr. David Hayes-Bautista is the author of "Cinco de Mayo: An American Holiday." As Dr. Hayes-Bautista has explained in journal articles, Cinco de Mayo was started in California during the Civil War as a pro-Union and pro-Mexican Republic holiday. His book is part of a growing transnational view of the Civil War.

The book is going to be released May 2012 and can be pre-ordered online at online book dealers.

Starting this year Cinco de Mayo is going to be redefined as a anti-Confederate holiday.

Dr. Hayes-Bautista is very prominent and influential individual.
