A comprehensive, interpretive, open-access digital archive on the nationalist rebellion against U.S. military intervention in Nicaragua led by Augusto C. Sandino in the 1920s and ’30s. Rigorous accuracy, judicious interpretation, and the democratization of knowledge rank among its most important guiding principles.
The website houses and integrates over 3,310 archival documents on the rebellion, comprising around 10,000 pages of hard-copy text and images, with a good portion of the text transcribed and fully searchable. It also lists and identifies the specific archival locations of another 5,000 documents, which together comprise over 15,000 pages of text. Eventually, this website will house and integrate over 30,000 documents — and thousands more pages of published texts — materials collected over two decades in archives and libraries in the United States and Nicaragua.
