Additional Information

Trainer Comments: Cinco de Mayo, or the fifth of May, is a Mexican holiday commemorating the Mexican army’s 1862 victory over France at the Battle of Puebla during the Franco-Mexican War (1861-1867). It's also known as Battle of Puebla Day. While a relatively minor holiday in Mexico, in the United States, Cinco de Mayo has evolved into a celebration of Mexican culture and heritage, particularly in areas with large Mexican American populations.
