According to Haitian History

Today in Haitian History – July 1, 1915 – Americans arrive to Cap-Haïtien.

Led by Rear Admiral William Banks Caperton (image above) and with the declared aim of protecting American lives and property that were now endangered by the increasing violence in the Haitian government, American Marines seized control of Cap-Haïtien’s port.

Later the same month, following the (opportune) bloody assassination of Haitian president Guillaume Sam, US Marines embarked on a 19 years occupation of the country.
