Season 2, Episode 19. As William Walker struggles to maintain his control of Nicaragua, the Latin American Allies working with Cornelius Vanderbilt are finally able to dethrone the self-appointed “President of Nicaragua,” finally ending the American endeavor at conquering Nicaragua and the surrounding countries. This episode is Part 6 of 6 in the story of William Walker’s attempt at establishing his own Republic of Nicaragua.
Clarification: I claim that the Sharps rifle had a range of "twenty football fields". A listener pointed out that Wikipedia lists an effective firing range of only 500 yards, and a maximum range of 1,000 yards. In Tycoon’s War, Stephen Dando-Collins writes, "The Hondurans thought they were out of range, but the Sharps rifle had a range of two thousand yards." Neither Wikipedia nor Dando-Collins offer a citation for their range estimates, so I don’t know which one is correct, but I was referencing Dando-Collins for my claim.
