Happy Cinco de Mayo from MadBitcoins (enjoy some History with your chips and salsa)


Batalla_de_Puebla.png

Cinco de Mayo or El Día de la Batalla de Puebla (The Day of the Battle of Puebla) is a holiday celebrated primarily in Mexico and the United States, commemorating the unlikely victory of the Mexican Army over the French on May 5, 1862.  The holiday is also seen as a way for Mexican Americans to honor and celebrate their ethnic heritage. 

an excerpt from:
Cinco De Mayo by Mary Naylor

See General Zaragoza,
Who planned to make Mexico free.
Look! General Profirio Dias,
Who brought the French to their knees.
Their weapons, antique artillery,
Soldiers clothed in tattered rags.,
Beat the French with all their wealth, you see.
So raise the pinatas high and wave your flags! 

The USA cheered for Mexico,
For they, too, once battled to be free,
Countries who would rule them, were foe,
So they fought too, and made them flee.

Beautiful children from Mexico,
Dancing in your costumes of red, white and green.
Dance to honor the heroes of long ago,
And their battles, now unheard and unseen.

The Battle of Pueblo was important, not simply because a smaller Mexican force of around 4,000 men defeated a larger French force of 8,000 men, but because since the Battle of Pueblo, no country in the Americas has been invaded by any European force.

There is something magnificent in having a country to love. -- James Russell Lowell
