Cinco de Mayo Facts

By Mei Yee


Did you know that Cinco de Mayo is celebrated more in America than it is in Mexico?


I knew some about the history, but I did find some interesting facts while looking up accurate facts. (I say accurate because my mind is a vast wonderland and history facts get lost/jumbled up in it.)


  • Cinco de Mayo was about the Battle of Puebla and is not Mexico's Independence Day (which is actually Sept. 16th).


  • Cinco de Mayo is more important for Americans. The Mexican Army delayed the French invasion. Had the French not been delayed and lost about 500 soldiers.
