Account of a 1906 military campaign during the drawn-out Totoposte Wars between El Salvador and Guatemala. The campaign in question was led by coffee baron and former President of El Salvador Tomás Regalado, fatally wounded during the altercation. Guatemala eventually forced both Salvadoran and Mexican forces out, putting an end to the series of Wars that had plagued the countries for seven years. This short history published on the occasion of the second anniversary of the Guatemalan coup d'état of 1954.
