Collectors look for holiday mementos of all kinds—Christmas ornaments, Mother's Day cards, Halloween lanterns. Political collectors are more likely, though, to seek remembrances of events like the Mexican Revolution. Many Mexicans celebrate the 1862 victory over the French in a festival called Cinco de Mayo (May 5). This page features a poem titled "Liberty." It's from a friendship album that belonged to the wife of an officer that served with General Ignacio Zaragoza Seguín. The album sold for $4200 at a Cowan's auction last year.
