    This guy actually united all of central america on a crussade against him. Every nation sent soldiers. So, in a way he improved diplomatic relations in the region.
    I wonder why didn't other latam countries intervene. It's not like the guy had support from any great power including the american government.

      The threat of invasion/intervention that everybody saw coming and the eventual coup by Walker in Nicaragua didnt unite everything. Years before Costa Rica had deported Central Americans from their country and their president, Mora, who was an autist tier Hispanist openly said Hispanic America should Unite but that Central Americans were not Hispanic and didnt count.

      Costa Rica sold the war all over the continent as a war against Hispanism, and since day one received lots of economic support from Peru and Chile. Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala only joined the war after Costa Ricas first campaign victories that showed Nicaragua had no chance of winning.

      Even if during the later second campaing there was colaboration between the Central American armies, this had little value. Mora refused to recognize the Nicaraguan rebels who helped fight against Walker and the Nicaraguan army, as soon as the war ended he cut ties again with the Central American countries and refused to help Nicaragua in any way. Actually, Nicaragua proposed to form a country with Costa Rica, and this was rejected.

      Today, the whole event is seen as a War in Costa Rica and a Civil War in Nicaragua, while in Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala they try to paint it as a Central American common war but nobody cares and only failed unionists promote it/

      >but anon, Costa Ricas president said just before marching that the country had to go and rescue their "Central American brothers"

      Looks nice on paper and for propaganda, but not very effective when years before he was calling them "subhumans who are only useful to kill each other".

      More like infighting and lack of support

      >Costa Rican diplomacy neutralized U.S. official support for Walker by taking advantage of the dispute between the magnate Cornelius Vanderbilt and William Walker.

    How would America be different if we had brown slaves instead of black? Would we be spared hiphop?

      Not viable. The natives usually escaped or died of disease.
