Cinco de Mayo
True or False?
Cinco de Mayo is Mexico’s Independence Day.
Cinco de Mayo celebrates Mexico’s victory over the French at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862. As Napoleon III marched towards Mexico City with plans to invade, he encountered a small Mexican army at Puebla. Even though the Mexican army had fewer resources and less training, they were able to defeat the French and stop the invasion.
That’s worth raising a (margarita) glass to, don’t you think?
Cheers—and Happy Cinco de Mayo from our entire team!
