WHY 5 DE MAYO MATTERS . . . The Battle of Puebla happened on May 5, 1862 because France came to collect on Mexico's war debts. The United States was involved in the Civil War and was unable to enforce the Monroe Doctrine. France had a deal with the Confederacy to use Mexico to funnel arms shipments to the South, enabling them to defeat Abraham Lincoln's forces and secure French passage toward reconquering Canada. The Mexican Army, commanded by 'repatriated' Tejano General Ignacio Zaragoza, defeated the French forces, led by the Marquis de Laurencez and thwarted that plan and enabled President Benito Juarez to stall the advances of Napoleon II's French Empire. The rest is history.
