Battle of Caseros 1852, Invasion of South America

On February 3, 1852, undocumented US Marines landed in Buenos Aries and invaded Argentina to “protect American interests” during one of the Argentine civil wars.  The Battle of Caseros was fought between Argentine forces on this date.  The Marines remained through February 12, 1852.  They returned later that year, apparently, uninvited and undocumented, on September 17, 1852 and occupied the city through April 1853.  (I was not able to obtain any records of visas issues by the Argentinian Government to the US Marines.)
