The World Each Nation National flags © Aania - Fotolia.comWhen you think of American culture images of hot dogs and apple pie may spring to mind, but there is so much more to it than that. The United States of America has been greatly influenced by the many different immigrant groups that have called it home, including the influx of a Hispanic population.

To commemorate this relationship, National Hispanic Heritage Month started in 1968 as Hispanic Heritage Week under President Lyndon B. Johnson.
