Cinco de Mayo commemorates a battle in 1862 in which only a few thousand Mexican soldiers managed to defeat more than twice their numbers in invading French troops. As a symbol of national pride for many Mexican Americans, Cinco de Mayo offers a chance to share some Mexican culture with your family.
