had lost the battle of Puebla the French would have assisted the Confederacy
during the Civil war seems to be a bit of a stretch. It would be more accurate
if Mexico had not resisted the French at all.
The US Civil War lasted from 1861 to 1865.
The Mexican Army had victory over the French at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862.
But the French continued to war with Mexico with victories (even captured
Mexico City) until 1865 when the US Civil War ended.
Mexico eventually won and the French withdrew in 1866 (for a few reasons).
