We love tequila, so "Every Day is Cinco de Mayo!"
May 5th. What's the real significance of that date? It's not "Mexican Independence Day" as some believe. Here's the short story and a link to the longer version:
In 1861, the Mexican people elected a new president. Unfortunately, the country was facing difficult financial times, and the president was not able to pay all of the debts Mexico owed to several European governments. Some countries sent armed forces to handle the matter but ended up negotiating rather than using force. However, France sent troupes, would not negotiate, and would not leave Mexico. Instead, the French attacked Veracruz, forcing the president to retreat. With the help of General Ignacio Zaragoza, Mexico defeated the French at Pueblo on May 5, 1862. It was one battle, but it was viewed as a symbolic victory. The French eventually withdrew from Mexico in 1867. Read the longer version at www.history.com.
