Undocumented US Forces Invade Panama 1860

On September 27, 1860, undocumented US forces invaded the sovereign nation of Colombia at the Bay of Panama, to ‘protect’ North American interests during a revolution. At least, that was the North American perspective.  The Colombian perspective was that the US was interfering with their sovereignty while the Colombians legitimately defended their nation from insurrection by enemy combatants.  (No watermelons were implicated or harmed in this invasion – please refer to September 19, 1856.)
