While the US was heavily distracted from events south of the border, Mexico was planned by French leaders to become a puppet state of France. French soldiers and a puppet leader, tried to establish a "colony" of sorts in Mexico. When the US Civil War ended, troops were sent to the Mexican border and the US threatened military action unless France withdrew itself from Mexico. The puppet leader of Mexico was hung by the Mexican people.

Mexico remained neutral during the Civil War. In 1864 before the Civil War was over, Napoleon 3 of France invaded Mexico & set up a puppet empire ruled by Maximilian. After the Civil war in 1867, the Mexicans defeated the French, executed Maximilian, & made Benito Juarez the 1st President of Mexico.
