The Aftermath

However, that victory would be short lived. The French eventually regained power and installed Habsburg Archduke Maximilian as Emperor of Mexico. Just five years later, Maximilian was captured and executed by Mexican forces in 1867. Today, Cinco de Mayo is a popular celebration of Mexican heritage and culture. (Photo: Wikimedia Commons)
