Cinco de Mayo is a Mexican American cultural celebration that commemorates the Mexican victory over French forces at the Battle of Puebla in 1862.
Young Mexicans changed American history by blocking French forces from colonizing Mexico and joining the U.S. Confederacy. If it wasn’t for the young people of Puebla, Mexico, we might have remained a slaving nation.
