vprolific What is CINCO DE MAYO?
It isn't Mexico's Independence Day it is; The Battle of Puebla, Mexico in which the Mexican Army under General Ignacio Zaragoza defeated The French Army under Napoleon Bonaparte on May 5th,1862.
These were difficult times for the people of Mexico. They had just lost Texas to the U.S., bankrupt from poor leadership corruption and were at war with themselves on who would run Mexico/ Free it from the powers that be.

This is why Napoleon Bonaparte thought he could invade Mexico and they would just hand it to him. He thought they were vulnerable from being broke and tired from prior battles.
Although it is true that money gives you a huge upper hand in war/battles it won't necessarily give you a win. The people of Mexico fought for freedom. When you're fighting for your life, money doesn't become an excuse. "The national arms have been covered with glory. The French troops conducted themselves with valor, their commander clumsily." -General Zaragoza
