Fifth of May in Laredo

Yay for the Batalla de Puebla of 1862, I think. Uh, whatever, but there is a kinda cool exhibit sponsored by the Mexican Consulate and the Webb County Heritage Foundation that conveniently falls on Cinco de Mayo.

By what I can tell, no French were involved in the planning of this event and there is no French plan to occupy Mexico but I bet there are plenty of bars in Laredo that will be ready for the throngs of “celebrants” and will be serving Mexican beer all night. Should I be one of them or … oh, that’s right, I have a conference presentation to prepare for. Nevermind.

UPDATE:

Oh yeah, and we can’t forget that the leader of the Mexican who led the defeat of the big French invasion was Ignacio Seguín Zaragoza, a Texas native.
