Cinco de Mayo and the Civil War

Ongoing Opportunities

  • Saturday, April 27 at 2:00 PM

In this educational and fun presentation, you will learn about the French Emperor’s attempt to topple the government of Mexico and replace it with a puppet regime–all during the backdrop of the American Civil War. The struggle between the French and Mexican forces helped influence the outcome of the Civil War and forged Cinco de Mayo–one of America’s most popular, but least understood celebrations.

This event is free with admission.
