- The BATTLE OF PUEBLA
- CINCO DE MAYO is the Famous May 5th Mexican
Holiday Celebrating the Anniversary of the Mexican Victory over the
French at the Battle of Puebla in 1862.
- In 1862, Mexican President Benito Juarez decided
that all foreign debt payments would be put on hold for 2 years.
Mexico arranged an agreement with Britain and Spain, but
Napolean III decided the French wanted to take advantage of this
debt to attack Mexico and establish control in a Latin country
to favor the French interests. The French attacked Mexico
and on May 5, 1862 Mexican General Ignacio Zaragoza and his
troops defeated the French in the famous battle in Puebla.
