Mexicans wear costumes along the streets of the Penon de los Banos neighborhood in Mexico City, on May 5, 2013, commemorating the anniversary of Mexico's victory over France in the 1862's Battle of Puebla. Although in 1863 France finally took the Mexican capital and installed a five-year regime led by Emperor Maximilian, the Battle of Puebla's importance lies in that it strengthened the Mexican spirit after it prevented Napoleon III from conquering the country in a first attempt.
