    The true history of the 5 de Mayo celebrations 🇲🇽🎊

    Presented by: Rocio Carvajal Food history writer, cook and author.

    Episode 57



    5 de Mayo is internationally recognised as a Mexican celebration, but why is it such a big deal in the USA? In this epic episode, I explore the many events that lead to the famous battle of Puebla on that eventful day of May 5th, 1862 and the fascinating aftermath that changed the nation's history.

    Find out how Emperor Napoleon III, President Benito Juárez, General Ignacio Zaragoza, and Maximilian from Austria ended up entangled in a story of intrigue, treason, greed, death and glory. This is Game of thrones Mexican style!
