Fiesta Grande

On May 5, 1862, 4,000 Mexican troops using machetes, cattle and one really good Calvary unit held off a combined French-Mex force of 8,000 just outside of Mexico City. The smashing of the French troops stopped them from supplying the American Rebel forces and led to the end of the American Civil war 18 months later at Gettysburg.

It's a historical event, not just for Mexicans, but for Americans as well. And - you know me - any excuse for party is a good one! (Especially if it involves Cerveza!)
