The Battle of Puebla Spanish: Batalla de Puebla ; French: The battle ended in a victory for the Mexican Army over the occupying French soldiers. The French eventually overran the Mexicans in subsequent battles, but the Mexican victory at Puebla against a much better equipped and larger  French army provided a significant morale boost to the Mexican army and also helped slow the French army’s advance towards Mexico City.

The Mexican victory is celebrated yearly on the fifth of May. The Day of the Battle of Puebla.
In the United Statesthis holiday has evolved into the very popular Cinco de Mayo holiday, a celebration of Mexican heritage. The —60 Mexican civil war known as The Reform War had caused major distress throughout Mexico’s jauhactal. At the end of October diplomats from Spain, France, and Britain met in London to form the Tripartite Alliance, with the main purpose of launching an allied invasion of Mexico, taking control of Veracruz, its major port, and forcing the Mexican government to negotiate terms for repaying its debts and for reparations for alleged harm to foreign citizens in Mexico.

The allied forces occupied Veracruz and advanced to Orizaba. However, the Tripartite Alliance fell apart by early Aprilwhen it became clear the French wanted to impose harsh demands on the Juarez government and provoke a war.
Napoleon III wanted to set up a puppet Mexican regime. The French expeditionary force at the time was led by General Charles de Lorencez. When the Mexican Republic forces saw these French soldiers on the march, they took it that hostilities had recommenced and felt threatened. To add to the mounting concerns, it was discovered that political negotiations for the withdrawal had broken down.
A vehement complaint was lodged by the Mexicans to General Lorencez who took the effrontery as a plan to assail his forces.
Lorencez decided to hold up his withdrawal to the coast by occupying Orizaba instead, which prevented the Mexicans from being able to defend the passes between Orizaba and the landing port bataloa Veracruz.
The year-old Mexican Vatalla General, Ignacio Zaragozafell back to Acultzingo Pass where he and his army were badly beaten in a skirmish with Lorencez’s forces on 28 April. Zaragoza retreated to Puebla which was heavily fortified — it had been held by the Mexican government since the Reform War.
To its north stood the forts Loreto and Guadalupe on opposite hilltops. Zaragoza had a trench dug to join the forts via the saddle. Lorencez was led to believe that the people of Puebla were friendly to the French, and that the Mexican Republican garrison which kept the people in line would be overrun by batzlla population once he made a show of force. This would prove to be a serious miscalculation on Lorencez’s part.
On 5 Mayagainst all advice, Lorencez decided to attack Puebla from the north. However, he started his attack a little too late in the day, using his artillery just before noon and by noon advancing his infantry.
By the third attack the French required the full engagement of all their reserves. The French artillery had run out of ammunition, so the third infantry attack jhauactal unsupported. The Mexican forces and the Republican garrison both put up a stout defense and even took jxhuactal the field to defend the positions between the hilltop forts. As jahuactao French retreated from their final assault, Zaragoza had his cavalry attack them from the right and left while troops concealed along the road pivoted out to flank them.
Battle of La Carbonera
Lorencez withdrew to distant positions, counting of his men killed against only 83 of the Mexicans. He waited a couple of days for Zaragoza to attack again, but Zaragoza held his ground. Lorencez then completely withdrew to Orizaba.
The Battle of Puebla was an inspirational event for wartime Mexico, and it provided jahuacral stunning revelation to the rest of the world which had largely expected a rapid victory for French arms.
Slowed by their loss at Puebla, the French forces retreated and regrouped, and the invasion continued after Napoleon III determinedly sent additional troops to Mexico. A common misconception in the United States is that Cinco de Mayo is Mexico’s Independence Day,  the most important jauuactal patriotic holiday in Mexico.
