Cinco de Mayo. Most people do not even know what this holiday is all about. It's about a battle in which the Mexican army defeated a French army.

They don't mention that a year later, Napoleon III had his French troops in Mexico City.

Now, my question is why don't the Mexicans celebrate their victory at the Alamo?
