Today in History: On May 5, 1862, Mexican forces are able to defeat French occupying forces at the city of Puebla. The battle came after Napoleon III sent French soldiers to Mexico to collect on debts owed to them. Although Mexican forces defeated the French at this battle, French would go on to win the war and occupy Mexico under the command of Austrian Archduke Maximilian until 1867. On September 16, 1862, Mexican President Benito Juarez declared that the fifth of May would be a national holiday. Although no longer a federal holiday, Cinco de Mayo is celebrated around the world as a day to recognize Mexican heritage and culture.
