Cinco de Mayo (“Fifth of May” in Spanish) is an annual observation held on May 5 in the United States and Mexico. The day marks the military victory of the Mexican army on its own land over the French in 1862. The collision, called the “Battle of Puebla”, took place in the city of Puebla in east-central Mexico. The day is also known as Battle of Puebla Day. The Mexican side in this war was led by General Ignacio Zaragoza.

Benito Juárez was the president of the country at that time, served from 1858 until his death in office in 1872. Notably, the Benito Juárez street in New Delhi where the Mexican Embassy is located is named after him.

Having a deep look at the Battle of Puebla, according to the indianexpress.com, In late 1861, the Mexican port of Veracruz, which is currently the main seaport on Mexico’s east coast was attacked by a fleet of the french army, which shocked the Benito government and put them on the backfoot. The capture of Veracruz was just a sign, the main goal of the French forces was to capture the country’s capital, Mexico City. As they step forward to Mexico City, at Puebla, which is 129 km ahead of Mexico City, the French faced stiff contention from the Mexican army.

The poorly equipped Mexican army of 4000 conquered the advancing 8000 French battalions on May 5, 1862: about 1,000 French troops were killed. While Mexican losses were about 85 dead and more than 100 wounded.
