Smells like team spirit

On this day in 1862, the Mexican army defeated occupying French forces at the Battle of Puebla, an occasion marked in modern times by the Cinco de Mayo holiday. On the same day 99 years after the Mexican triumph, Alan Shepard became the first US-citizen to travel to space. The events are unrelated, except they’re both worthy of celebration (unless you’re a member of the 1862 French military or a Soviet-era cosmonaut). While A!E continues its vacation, get into a celebratory mood with these stories of team spirit.
