1 Cinco de Mayo on Wed 04 May 2011, 4:00 am

Cinco de Mayo means May 5th in spanish. It celebrates a major battle the Mexican people won in their war of independence.
*****************************************************************
Cinco de Mayo characterizes a Mexican army’s victory over the French army on May 5, 1862 near Mexico City.
This triumph lifted morale through a period of political and economic upheaval. The French ruled Mexico for a short time in a period known as the French Intervention that lasted until 1867.
Preventing the French from creating an empire in North America was of mutual interest that sparked cooperation between US President Abraham Lincoln and Benito Juárez, the President of Mexico. To this day, statues of President Lincoln are in Mexico and statues of the Mexican President, one of the Mexico’s most beloved leaders, grace US soil.
