Cinco de Mayo (Fifth of May) is a commemorative celebration of the Mexican army’s 1862 victory over France at the Battle of Puebla during Franco vs Mexico War from 1861-1867. It is celebrated (most commonly) in the United States and Mexico. Cinco de Mayo is often misidentified as Mexico’s Independence Day which is September 16th.
