Yucatan War 1847-1933
This war was only an extension of the 1846-1848 Mexican-American War. In 1846, the white confederation of Europe had sent white soldiers from the United States to Mexico and brought the capital of Mexico, Mexico City, under their control by 1848. The fighting had ended in most of Mexico excepting the north of Mexico and the Yucatan. In the Yucatan, Anishinabe soldiers and their Indian and black allies, kept fighting the white invaders. Another fact about this war was the English invasion into the Yucatan. The English had been trying for years to force their way into the Yucatan because they knew Anishinabe soldiers had forced their way into the Yucatan in the 18th century from probably Cuba and Jamaica. At stake as well was that part of Mexico now known as Central America. Central America was originally a part of Mexico after the Anishinabe Army drove the whites out. Supposedly on July 1, 1823, Central American leaders declared independence from Mexico but you do not want to accept that bit of historical information. Why? The Panama Canal which had yet to be built! White leaders had long known that a canal could be built in Panama. It was the white confederation of Europe which illicitly declared independence from Mexico. It was done over Panama.
This Yucatan War obviously involved Central America. The white confederation of Europe led by England, declared the new State of English British Honduras. It included Belize of course, and the rest of Central America. This was announced in 1840. A couple of years after the white confederation of Europe invaded Mexico in 1838 and initiated the Pastry War. White soldiers were stationed in Belize early on. And it was from Belize where the white soldiers commenced to fight the Anishinabe Army for control of Central America. Anishinabe soldiers were at a disadvantage during the early stages of this war. The whites had the revolver and that led to them successfully establishing their presence in Mexico including the Yucatan and the rest of Central America. In 1856-1857, the white confederation of Europe had sent white soldiers from the United States to Costa Rica and Nicaragua. They did so in order to prepare for the eventual construction of the Panama Canal. Though historians claim the Americans were defeated that is not true. They successfully established a white presence in Costa Rica and Nicaragua. By 1857, the white confederation of Europe had forced their way into the region between Belize and Nicaragua. That includes what is now the country of Honduras. The whites now had access to the Panama region. It was in 1857 when the Anishinabe Nation lost control of most of Central America. However, they still controlled El Salvador and Guatamala.
During the 1846-1848 Mexican American War, the whites invaded the Yucatan and a long war erupted which lasted until 1933. Historians may refer to this war as the Caste War of Yucatan but that's far from the truth. Throughout the course of this war it was claimed that the war had officially ended only to have new fighting erupting once again. It stayed that way until 1933. During the years between 1900 and 1933, what is now the State of Quintana Roo, was an extremely unsafe place. It was the last location in the Yucatan still controlled by the Anishinabe soldiers and their allies. Any whites who ventured into that region stood a good chance of being killed. The casualties of this long war were heavy. It is estimated that up to 50,000 people were killed in this conflict.
