Also, did Mexico win the war against France?
After losing the Battle of Puebla, France went on to win the war. Mexico's victory at Puebla slowed, but did not stop, France's assault. In the wake of the battle, an infuriated Emperor Napoleon III ordered that almost 30,000 more troops be sent to Mexico.
Did France ever control Mexico?
The battle itself did not decide the war—the French returned to capture Puebla and Mexico City in 1863. France controlled Mexico until 1867, when Mexican troops overthrew their government and returned to being an independent republic. Over time, the Battle of Puebla grew in national significance.
