US Marines Capture Sandino Rebel Flag, Nicaragua, 1932

US Marines Capture Sandino Rebel Flag, Nicaragua, 1932

Taken on 1932-06-30

US Marines with the captured flag of Augusto César Sandino in Nicaragua in 1932 (Date Unknown). Augusto César Sandino was a Nicaraguan revolutionary and leader of a rebellion between 1927 and 1933 against the U.S. military occupation of Nicaragua. He was referred to as a "bandit" by the United States government; his exploits made him a hero throughout much of Latin America, where he became a symbol of resistance to United States' domination. He drew units of the United States Marine Corps into an undeclared guerrilla war. The United States troops withdrew from the country in 1933 after overseeing the election and inauguration of President Juan Bautista Sacasa, who had returned from exile. The re-call of the Marines was largely due to the Great Depression. The Banana Wars were a series of occupations, police actions, and interventions involving the United States in Central America and the Caribbean.
