Cinco de Mayo
celebrates the first battle of Puebla, which the Mexican army won in 1862. This perspective theater commemorates the *second*
battle of Puebla in 1863, which ended in the defeat of the Mexican army and set
the stage for the brief French rule of Mexico.
As we peek inside, we find ourselves behind masses of French soldiers moving toward the fort and city of Puebla, which is being
defended by a smaller Mexican force.
