The true story behind this holiday is a remarkable battle in which an outnumbered Mexican force, including many farmworkers, defeated the powerful French army outside Mexico City in 1862. Readers will enjoy learning more about this battle as well as how people celebrate on May 5 each year. Colorful photographs and illustrations further enhance the accessible text.
