SUB-DIVISION OF CHICHIGALPA
DIVISION OF CHINANDEGA
GUARDIA NACIONAL DE NICARAGUA
Chichigalpa, Nic.-
17 May, 1928.

From: Sub-Division Commander.
To: The Chief of the Guardia Nacional.
Subject: Attack on outpost at Posoltega.

     1.  At 12:00 midnight 16-17 of May I received notice from the local railway station agent that the Guardia in Posoltega were being attacked by a group of bandits. I immediately left with three men to reinforce the outpost whose strength was only three men.

     When about one mile from Posoltega, I heard three shots from a rifle. I arrived with patrol and found everything quiet. I received the report that about fifteen bandits had tried to enter the town when they were discovered by the Guardia attack on outpost at Posoltega. (cont)

     Approximately twenty shots were exchanged, and the bandits retreated in the direction of San Juan and El Bosque.

     Raso Zelaya in charge of outpost reported that the majority of the bandits were dressed in khaki, and all were mounted.

     No casualties were suffered by the Guardia. Raso Zelaya reported having heard several outcries from the enemy that indicated they had some wounded.

     I made short reconnoitering patrol in direction of El Bosque but was unable to get any information as to the whereabouts of enemy.

     Two men were left to reinforce outpost and Sgt. Gómez and I returned to Chichigalpa 3:30 a.m. May 17, 1928.

/s/ George H. Adams

127/204/3

Summary & Notes:

   Brief exchange of gunfire with "bandits" at small GN garrison at Posoltega, in heavily populated zone of Pacific Coast region, well outside zone of EDSN mobilization.
   Unknown whether these were EDSN, but very unlikely.   No report of red-and-black, dressed in khaki, mounted.  Very probably a Conservative gang.

   Goal of the attack? Unknown.
