~~May 5, 2018~~ย 


In the United States, Cinco de Mayo is seen as THEย day to celebrate Mexican food, culture, and traditions

As time has passed, the historical context ofย  ‘Cinco de Mayo‘ started to be forgotten.

History of Cinco de Mayo in the US
In 1862, at the time the Battle of Puebla took place, the United States was engaged in its Civil War. The French presence in Mexico was a strategic move:

by gaining a toehold in Mexico, the French could then support the Confederate Army.

The defeat of the French at the Battle of Puebla was not definitive, but it helped to stave off the French while the U.S. Union forces made advances.
Thus Cinco de Mayo can be seen as a turning point in the US Civil War.

Cinco de Mayo was first celebrated in the United States in Southern Californiaย in 1863ย as a show of solidarity with Mexico against French rule.
