VIVA MEXICO! VIVA THE U.S.A.!
This will be a huge day for the city of Louisville being that this will be the biggest event of its kind in the state of Kentucky. Cinco de Mayo is a Mexican Holiday celebrating the Battle of Puebla, which took place on May 5, 1862. The French army was much larger (7 times larger in numbers than the Mexicans), better trained and equipped than the Mexicans struggling to defend the road to Mexico City. It rolled through Mexico until it reached Puebla, where the Mexicans along with some brave American volunteers made a valiant stand, and, against all logic, won a huge victory—this is what is celebrated every year in both Mexico and the U.S. to this day.
