“Cinco de Mayo commemorates the Mexican Army’s defeat of French troops at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862. The victory was significant in part because the odds were against Mexico — Napoleon was in charge at the time — and because some historians believe it likely prevented France from backing the Confederacy in the United States during America’s Civil War. Of course, in 2017 Cinco de Mayo also signifies deeply discounted cocktails at Tex Mex restaurants.”
So, Napoleon was in command of French forces at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862? He must have been one tough hombre since he died in 1821, forty-one years before the battle. Is this what you call “fake news” or what?
