I was interested to know a bit more about the history of the Cinco de Mayo celebration, so the other day I asked who could give me an answer to the question “Why was the battle of Puebla important to the country of Mexico.” I also said that I would do a giveaway to the first person to comment with an answer. And the winner is…….oh wait, first read this:
Here are a few excerpts from wikipedia: “The Battle of Puebla took place on 5 May 1862 near the city of Puebla during the French intervention in Mexico. The battle ended in a victory for the Mexican Army over the occupying French forces. The French eventually overran the Mexicans in subsequent battles, but the Mexican victory at Puebla against a much better equipped and larger French army provided a significant morale boost to the Mexican army and also helped slow the French army’s advance towards Mexico City. The Battle of Puebla was an inspirational event for wartime Mexico, and it provided a stunning revelation to the rest of the world which had largely expected a rapid victory for French arms.”
So now we all know a bit more about the Cinco de Mayo celebration in Mexico 🙂 Now to the giveaway…
And the winner is……Oralia!! Thanks for your comment!
