Hola and happy Cinco de Mayo! 145 years ago, the French visited Mexico to collect Mexican debts, but very soon outwore their welcome. Under the rule of Emperor Napoleon III, the French militia set out to conquer the country of Mexico. Even though the French force was better armed and three times as large, the Mexican army came out on top at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862.
Today, the celebration is heavy in parts of Mexico and large cities where many people have a Mexican background. Special foods, music, beverages, and parades keep the holiday festive. Interviews with a long time Cinco de Mayo celebrator follows:
