   Cinco de Mayo commemorates an initial victory of Mexican forces led by General Ignacio Zaragoza Seguín over French forces in the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862. However, this Mexican victory at Puebla only delayed the French invasion of Mexico City. A year later, the French occupied Mexico and placed Maximilian I as Emperor. The French were eventually defeated and expelled in 1867.

   The origin of the observance of Cinco de Mayo in the United States first started in California in 1863 in response to the resistance to French rule in Mexico and since then, it has been celebrated in California continuously. In Mexico, Cinco de Mayo is primarily a regional holiday celebrated in the State of Puebla.

   In the United States, Cinco de Mayo has taken on a significance beyond that in Mexico. Commercial interests in the United States have capitalized on the celebration, advertising Mexican products and services, with an emphasis on beverages,foods, and music. The date is perhaps best recognized in the United States as a date to celebrate the culture and experiences of Americans of Mexican ancestry, much as St. Patrick9s Day, Oktoberfest, and the Chinese New Year are used to celebrate those of Irish, German, and Chinese ancestry, respectively.
