Storyboard Text

  • I guess I could overthrow their government for you.
  • Nicaragua is the perfect place for a canal! We just need Nicaragua to belong to the U.S.
  • William Walker formed an alliance and, with the help of some rebels, successfully overthrew the Nicaraguan government.
  • Good job men! Now Vanderbilt just needs to get the U.S. to assume direct control of Nicaragua.
  • Back in the U.S....
  • Hey, President, you want to control Nicaragua?
  • Nah.
  • Nicaraguans re-assumed control of the government and killed Walker by means of a firing squad.
  • Well..okay, I suppose that would work,
  • Trust me, Mr. Nicaragua, building a canal would be very beneficial. Just borrow some money to make and you will make a profit.
  • Nicaragua never built the canal and was heavily in debt to U.S. banks. This resulted in U.S. marines staying in Nicaragua to prevent further revolts. They stayed for 21 years.
