Calderonista Invasion of Costa Rican 1948

[ 1948 ]

The junta made revolutionary changes by dissolving the Costa Rican army, outlawing the Communist Party, nationalizing banks, and beginning civil service reform. There was opposition to these changes; on December 10, 1948, armed Calderonista rebels exiled in Nicaragua invaded Costa Rica but were repulsed, while the Organization of American States sent a commission to investigate Somoza's involvement in the invasion. In early 1949, a Costa Rican constitutional assembly met, confirmed the earlier election of Ulate, and drafted a new constitution. On November 8, 1949, Figueres turned over the government to Ulate.
