Which battle does the French Foreign Legion celebrate each year?

battle of Yu Oc (Vietnam)
battle of Borodino (Russia)
battle of the Somme (France)
the battle of Camarón (Mexico)
On 30 April 1863 a small infantry patrol of French Foreign Legion, numbering 62 soldiers and three officers was attacked and besieged by a force that may have eventually reached 3,000 Mexican infantry and cavalry. They made a defensive stand at the nearby Hacienda Camarón, with a plan to occupy Mexican forces to prevent attacks against the nearby French supply convoy. Only two legionnaires survived, but they stopped Mexicans for the whole day and reached their goal.
