Filibuster in Nicaragua, Part 3: The Republic of Nicaragua
After ending the Nicaraguan civil war, William Walker set up the provisional government for his new “Republic of Nicaragua.” The peace was short-lived as the surrounding Latin American countries join forces — with financial support provided by Cornelius Vanderbilt — to remove William Walker from power. This episode is Part 3 of 6 in the story of William Walker’s attempt at establishing his own Republic of Nicaragua.
Chris Calton gives a revisionist look at the antebellum period leading up to the Civil War. This is the 16th episode in the second season of Historical Controversies.
