A little background:

Cinco de Mayo is not Mexican Independence Day. Mexico’s Independence Day is actually September 16th and marks the anniversary of the “Cry of Dolores” – the ringing of bells from a church in 1810 that signaled the call to arms for Mexican independence from Spanish rule.

Instead, Cinco de Mayo commemorates a specific battle that occurred more than fifty years later. During the Second French Intervention in Mexico, the Mexican army was vastly outnumbered by the French forces. Despite the overwhelming odds, the Mexican forces were able to overcome the better-outfitted French army, slowing their march toward Mexico City.

Event location:

Crystal Springs Rest area 280N
