The Banana Wars were a series of conflicts that consisted of military occupation, police action, and intervention by the United States in Central America and the Caribbean between the end of the Spanish-American War in 1898 and the inception of the Good Neighbor Policy in 1934. Honduras, where the United Fruit Company and Standard Fruit Company dominated the country’s key banana export sector and associated land holdings and railways, saw insertion of American troops in 1903, 1907, 1911, 1912, 1919, 1924 and 1925.

Description and photos speak for the item. Be sure to check out the photos for condition of the items. NOTE I was mistaken about which Civil War re-enactment they were involved in. Researching, it had to have been the re-enactment of Antietam. The Marines marched from Quantico and camped along the way to participate.
