Puebla is four times heroic city

Puebla witnessed four important events in the history of Mexico. For this reason, the State Congress awarded the state capital as “Four Times Heroic” in 2013.

Battle of May 5th – The first heroic event in Mexico took place in Puebla City: The battle of May 5th “(Batalla del 5 de mayo”) in 1862, the Forts of Guadalupe and Loreto. Under the command of General Ignacio Zaragoza, the Army of the East, commanded by General Ignacio Zaragoza, defeated the French armed forces, which attacked three times that same day.

Siege of Puebla City – The Siege of Puebla was a military action of resistance of the Army of the East. Jesús González Ortega led the movement against the French forces. It lasted 62 days, from March 16th to May 17th, 1863. Although the Mexican army was defeated, their effort and bravery were recognized as heroic.

Capture of Puebla City – Also known as the Battle of April 2nd (“La Batalla del 2 de Abril”), 1867, the capture of Puebla consisted of the defense of the city of Puebla, by the Mexican Army under the command of the general Porfirio Díaz against the imperialist troops. This confrontation represented another national victory for the republican government.

Mexican Revolution – The beginning of the Mexican Revolution took place in Puebla with the Serdán Alatriste brothers; Áquiles, Máximo, Carmen, and Natalia Serdán who supported the ideas of Francisco I. Madero against the reelection of Porfirio Díaz. The attack on the Serdán brothers on November 18th, 1910, made them the first martyrs of the movement. This event accelerated social justice in Mexico.
