A Brief History of Cinco de Mayo
Cinco de Mayo is primarily celebrated to commemorate the Mexican army’s victory over French forces led by Napoleon III on May 5, 1862 at the Battle of Puebla near Mexico City.
It was a war based on politics because France wanted more land in Latin America. The Battle of Puebla was important because it inspired a resistance movement in the battle with France.
In America, the holiday has become a day to celebrate Mexican heritage and culture. It’s a time for friends and family to get together, enjoy traditional Mexican food and drink, and have a good time.
