National Hispanic Heritage Month in Pictures

7/10/1967- New York: Closeup of Roberto Clemente, Pittsburgh Pirates outfielder, June 27th.

National Hispanic Heritage Month is celebrated annually from Sept. 15th through October 15th and recognizes the history and culture of Hispanic Americans. The dates were originally chosen in remembrance of the start of the Mexican War of Independence, which began early Sept 16th, 1810. A number of central and South American countries celebrate the anniversary of their independence during this period including Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, and Nicaragua on September 15th; Mexico on September 16th; and Chile on Sept. 18th.
