>> On May 5th, 1862, north of the city of Puebla, the French Army under General Charles de Lorencez fought the Mexican army, under the command of General Ignacio Zaragoza.

A number of legends have grown up around this famous battle.

The popular view is that the Mexican army was composed of sturdy peasants armed with machetes, who defeated a vastly superior invasion force. Another story says the French were trampled by a cattle stampede. <<

That's DH's version, and he's sticking to it.
