Cinco de Mayo is a celebration of Mexican history. Often mistaken for Mexican Independence Day, students will learn that this important holiday does not commemorate Mexico’s independence from Spain, but marks Mexico’s unexpected victory over France at the Battle of Puebla. Although the French army eventually won, the Battle is important for two reasons: Mexico defeated a much bigger and more equipped French army against all odds and since the Battle of Puebla, no country in the Americas has been invaded by any other European military force. Discover the richness of this historic event by learning about the battle, why we celebrate Cinco de Mayo today, and other cultural traditions related to the historic city where this Battle took place – Puebla.
