The Battle of Puebla, which occurred on May 5, 1862, was very important to Mexico. This battle was against the French, which, as an army, had more equipment and more bodies than Mexico. Despite being large in number, Mexico was still able to claim victory. More than anything, The Battle of Puebla gave Mexico a morale boost against an army which most would say should have won.
This win was also important because it slowed the French down towards their goal of getting near Mexico City. The impact of this battle is still felt today as people celebrate Cinco de Mayo each year.
