Interesting facts about Cinco de Mayo you may not know:

Mexico commemorates the victory of a battle held against the armed forces of Napoleon III on May the 5th, 1862 in the city of Puebla, led by General Ignacio Zaragoza.

Ignacio Zaragoza was born in Presidio de la Bahía de Espíritu Santo, known today as Goliad, Texas.

In 1867, it is said that a group of Mexicans residing in Texas began to celebrate the date with songs and poetry, which would later become a celebration among Mexican communities in many other states of the US.

This date is paralleled in relevance to that of Mexican Independence –which actually is on September 16th.
