Central America


United Provinces of Central America (UPCA) - Republic of Texas relations refers to the historical foreign relations between The Federal Republic of Central America and The Republic of Texas. Relations started in 1836, immediately after the Texas Revolution, and ended in 1838 after the dissolution of The UPCA, however relations between the Republic of Texas and The UPCA's successor states; Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua and Costa Rica; continued until 1846 upon the annexation of Texas by the United States.

Independence from Mexico[edit]

In 1823 Mexico's southernmost provinces secceded from the union forming a Federation of ther own[1]. Texas secceded in a much different fashion, and for different reasons, but with the same intention of being free from Mexican Rule. Thus the two nations were seen as destined for diplomacy but few missions were ever enacted, due to there differences in Religion, Language and Ethics. Perhaps Texas' greatest influence over the Federation was the encouragement of nationalism, and in fact the strong feeling of nationalism Texas had was growing in The Central American Provinces, triggering the fragmentation of the Federation into five independent states[2]. Trade and relations between Texas and The former UPCA remained at a minimal, but Guatemala continued relations, and in 1845 was considering opening an embassy in Austin, Texas, however Texas was annexed by the United States before this was possible.

Guatemalan continuation of relations[edit]

Guatemala continued to trade goods with Texas, until 1846. In 1845 Guatemala was considering openina an embassy in Austin, Texas, and Texas was considering opening an embassy in Guatemala City[3], The US annexation of Texas cut the diplomatic plans short.

El Salvadoran continuation of relations[edit]

Of the 5 Provinces, El Salvador was the most opposed to the Fragmentation of the Federation while Texas had supported it, most El Salvadorans supported the idea of Bolivarianism, a united Roman Catholic Latin America, because of this trade with Texas along with all diplomatic ties, were cut to a minimum.[2],

Honduran continuation of relations[edit]

Nicaraguan continuation of relations[edit]

Nicaragua attempted more to maintain its relations with the United States[4], thus very little Trade or diplomacy commenced between Texas and Nicuragua.

Costa Rican continuation of relations[edit]
