Overview

On May 5, 1862, a small group of Mexican forces defeated a powerful French army at the Battle of Puebla, one of history’s most memorable fights for freedom. It is this victory that Mexicans, especially those settled in the United States, celebrate as Cinco de Mayo, (Fifth of May). Colorful parades, music, folk dances, and reenactments of the famous battle mark the celebrations.
