After Nicaragua refused to pay Britain indemnity for the annexation of Mosquito Reserve, on April 27, 1895 the British occupied the Nicaraguan Pacific port Corinto. However, the stay of the British was limited by Clayton-Bulwer Treaty with the United States and Britain was forced to withdraw without adequate compensation on May 15. On May 2, 1896, the U.S. Marines landed in Corinto in order to protect American interests during the political unrest. The USS Galveston landed a detachment of the US Marines at Corinto on January 25, 1922 to reinforce Managua legation guard during a political tension period.
