Anastasio Somoza García

Anastasio "Tacho" Somoza García was the 21st President of Nicaragua from 1 January 1937 to 1 May 1947 and from 21 May 1950 to 29 September 1956, but ruled as dictator from 1936 until his assassination. Anastasio Somoza started a dynasty; the son of a wealthy coffee planter, Somoza was educated in the United States. After his return to Nicaragua, he helped oust President Adolfo Díaz, he became the foreign secretary and took the title of "General". With the help of the US Marine Corps, which occupied Nicaragua at the time, Somoza became the head of the National Guard; this gave him the power base to remove his wife's uncle, Juan Bautista Sacasa, from the presidency, make himself president in 1937. In 1947, an ally nominally succeeded him. A month after his successor had been inaugurated, Somoza used the military to carry out a coup; the president was declared ` incapacitated' by Somoza served in his stead. Returning to power in his own name in 1951, he maintained an iron grip on his own Liberal Party while making a deal with the Conservatives.

This left him free to amass a huge personal fortune. On 21 September 1956, he was shot by poet Rigoberto López Pérez. Mortally wounded, he was flown to the Panama Canal Zone, his eldest son Luis Somoza Debayle, Speaker of the House at the time of Somoza Garcia's death, took over and was elected in his own right in 1957 to serve until 1963, to be succeeded by Dr. Rene Schick who served until his death in 1966, his term was completed by Lorenzo Guerrero. In 1967 his younger brother Anastasio Somoza Debayle was elected to serve until 1972, he was reelected in 1974 after a Constituent Assembly that lasted from 1972 to 1974. During that time the country was ruled by a coalition junta of Liberals. Somoza Debayle was forced to resign in 1979 and was assassinated in exile in Paraguay the following year. Somoza was born in San Marcos, Carazo Department in Nicaragua, the son of Anastasio Somoza Reyes, a wealthy coffee planter, Julia García, a grandson of Anastasio Somoza Martínez and Isabel Reyes; as a teenager, he was sent to live with relatives in Philadelphia, where he attended the Peirce School of Business Administration.

While living in Philadelphia, he met his future wife, Salvadora Debayle Sacasa, a member of one of Nicaragua's wealthiest families, daughter of Dr. Luis Henri Debayle Pallais and wife Casimira Sacasa Sacasa, daughter of Roberto Sacasa Sarria, 44th and 46th President of Nicaragua, wife and cousin Ángela Sacasa Cuadra. After returning to Nicaragua, he was unsuccessful as a businessman, he married Salvadora in 1919. They had two sons, Luis Somoza Debayle and Anastasio Somoza Debayle, a daughter, Lillian Somoza Debayle de Sevilla Sacasa. In 1926, Somoza joined the Liberal rebellion in support of the presidential claims of Juan Bautista Sacasa, his wife's uncle. Somoza failed to distinguish himself in battle, leading an unsuccessful attack on the garrison at San Marcos. However, as a result of being educated in the United States, he spoke excellent English and acted as an interpreter during the U. S.-brokered negotiations between the warring parties. In the government of President José María Moncada, to whom he was distantly related, he served as governor of the department of León, Nicaraguan Consul to Costa Rica, Foreign Minister.

Despite his limited military experience, Somoza was able to rise through the ranks of the Nicaraguan National Guard, the constabulary force organized by the United States Marines. After waging a bitter, six-year struggle with the forces of General Augusto Sandino, in January 1933, the Marines evacuated the country following the election of Juan Bautista Sacasa as President. At the urging of the U. S. Ambassador Matthew E. Hanna, Somoza García was appointed as director of the National Guard. During peace talks, Somoza ordered the assassination of General Sandino on 21 February 1934 in violation of a safe-conduct agreement. Sandino's assassination was followed by the murder of former Sandino supporters by the National Guard. In June 1936, Somoza forced Sacasa to resign. A series of puppets ruled for the remainder of the year, and, in December, Somoza was elected president by a margin of 107,201 votes to 100—an implausibly high margin that could have been obtained only through massive fraud, he took office on New Year's Day 1937.

Somoza, popularly known as "Tacho," amended the Constitution to centralize all power in his hands. Family members and key supporters monopolized key positions in the military. During World War II, the government confiscated the properties of Nicaragua's small, but economically influential German community and sold them to Somoza and his family at vastly lowered prices. By 1944, Somoza was the largest landowner in Nicaragua, owning fifty-one cattle ranches and forty-six coffee plantations, as well as several sugar mills and rum distilleries. Somoza named himself director of the Pacific Railroad, linking Managua to the nation's principal port, which moved his merchandise and crops for free and maintained his vehicles and agricultural equipment, he made substantial profits by granting concessions to foreign companies to exploit gold and timber, for which he received'executive levies' and'presidential commissions.' He passed laws restricting imports and organized contraband operations, which sold merchandise through his own stores.

He extracted bribes from illegal gambling and alcohol distilling. By the end of the decade, he had acquired a fortune estimated to be US$400 million. Though Nicaragua was on the Lend Lease in Worl
