    Ruins of Columbus after Villa's raid. Despite the massive destruction, only 18 Americans were killed against a loss of over 80 Villistas. Pancho Villa's scouts informed him that the town was only garrisoned by 30 American troops. The number present was actually over 300.

    Another place you might look at is the Library of Congress digital images collection. Goto http://www.loc.gov/index.html and go to "Digital Collections." In the search engine use terms like "Nicaragua" or "Nicaragua 1920" or "Dominican Republic" etc.

    The good news is that you will find images of Marines in Central America during the 1920's-30's. The bad news is that they might not have anything more than a thumbnail image posted. You won't know until you search and sort through the results.

    Both the Library of Congress and the National Archives and Records Administration have millions of images--but not everything is digitized or accessible by internet. Also, from time to time LOC and NARA post some interesting stuff. Some of the special collections and special projects are worth checking out.

    BTW, nice photos Megaraptor.

    Augusto César Sandino

    Augusto César Sandino , 1895-1934, Nicaraguan revolutionary general. A farmer and a mining engineer, he joined the liberal revolution (1926) against the conservative government headed by Adolfo Díaz and Emiliano Chamorro. He protested against the new U.S. intervention in Nicaragua in 1926 and rejected the Stimson-Moncada agreement for the elections of 1927. On this score Sandino broke with the liberal leader, José María Moncada, and conducted vigorous guerrilla campaigns (1927-33) against the U.S. marines. Never captured but finally reconciled after the withdrawal of the marines, he headed a cooperative farming scheme. In 1934 he was invited to meet with Gen. Anastasio Somoza , and when he did so, he was seized and executed. It is from his name that the Nicaraguan revolutionary group, the Sandinistas, derives its name.
