Event Description

The Cinco De Mayo holiday celebrates Mexico's victory over France in the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862.
It was a relatively minor battle -- the French reclaimed Puebla a year later -- but a symbolic one because a small Mexican army defeated a larger occupying force.
By 1867, Mexican troops had driven France from the country.
Many Americans assume Cinco de Mayo is Mexico's Independence Day. It's not.
That holiday falls on September 16 and commemorates the Grito de Dolores, a priest's ringing of a church bell in the town of Dolores in 1810 <br><br>
That is 110 years ago
 I swear that the graphic was an unfortunate random assignment of a graphic - but perhaps a fortuitous one.
