The Hispanic culture has been a major part of America long before the British Settlers came. The first recognition to this great race was given by President Lyndon Johnson when he made September 15th (Central America's Independence Day) the start of Hispanic Heritage week. In 1988, President Ronald Regan expanded the celebration to Hispanic Heritage Month, September 15 through October 15 to include Columbus Day (Dia de la Raza). The United States takes this time of year to honor the Hispanics (past and present) that have contributed to our society. A few are listed below.
