In late 1861, a well-armed French army attacked Veracruz moving towards Mexico City, where the French army encountered heavy resistance from Mexicans close to Puebla, at the Mexican Forts of Loreto and Guadalupe. The French army of 8,000 attacked the poorly equipped Mexican army of 4,000. On May 5, 1862, The Mexican army defeated the French. This victory represented a significant morale boost to the Mexican army and the Mexican people which brought forth a great sense of Unity and Pride of Country.
