About this Item

Filibuster William Walker's episode as president and "owner" of Nicaragua came to an end when Commodore Hiram Paulding, commander of the American Home Squadron in the Caribbean, captured him in December of 1857. Paulding did not have orders to do so (and may well have been acting at the behest of Cornelius Vanderbilt whose interests in Nicaragua were diametrically opposite those of Walker's). President James Buchanan reprimanded Paulding and removed from his command. Senator Doolittle of Wisconsin defends Paulding's actions. 8vo. 15, [1] p. Nicaraguan National Bibliography 6047. Removed from a nonce volume; all leaves separated. Good+ condition. Bookseller Inventory # 24843
