Happy Cinco De Mayo - where we honor the Mexican army for repelling an invasion by the French in the Battle of Puebla in 1862.

...Just a few years after they failed to repel an invasion by the United States.

The celebration was short lived. A year later, the French regrouped and took over Mexico anyway.
