What is Cinco de Mayo? It literally means “5th of May” and recognises a historic battle fought on 5 May 1862 where 4000 Mexican soldiers fought off twice that many French and traitor Mexican troops at Puebla, 100 miles east of Mexico City. The Mexican victory kept Napoleon III from supplying confederate soldiers during the United States Civil War, and thus began an unprecedented cooperation between the Mexican and American armies. Cinco de Mayo is now celebrated across North America and has evolved into a day of festivities to recognise freedom and liberty.
