Cinco de Mayo commemorates the legendary victory of the Mexican militia over the French army at The Battle Of Puebla in 1862 and is not to be confused with the also important Mexico’s Independence Day, which is September 16. The Battle Of Puebla marks a historic movement to live free and prosperously, and while only short lived, is as relevant a message today as ever.
