US Intervenes in Nicaragua
The President of Nicaragua was Jose Santos Zelaya. He had been in power since 1893 and had been trying to create a union of Central American countries by intervening actively in their affairs. These actions were opposed by the United States which supported the opposition to Zelaya. When Zelaya started to execute these "rebels"-- including two Americans-- the U.S. intervened militarily and ousted him.
