In 1860, the Mexican government declared bankruptcy, the result of decades of internal conflict which devastated the economy and the country.
When Mexico announced a suspension of debt payments to France, French Emperor Napoleon III, nephew of Napoleon Bonaparte, sent troops to Mexico in an attempt to force payment. Mexican debt payments weren’t the only benefit of French invasion for the French, however.

In honor of #CincodeMayo, here are some things you may not have known about Afro-Mexican history.
While the bulk of enslaved Africans ended up in South America+Caribbean (more than 4 million sent to Brazil alone), around 200K enslaved Africans were imported into what is now Mexico between the 1520s and 1829 #CincoDeMayo
Gaspar Yanga is a national hero. He was a former enslaved African who became “El Primer Libertador de las Américas” (the first liberator of the Americas). Yanga was brought to the Spanish colony in the 1500s and worked on a sugar plantation in Veracruz, Mexico. #CincoDeMayo
