The Federal Republic of Central America

An interesting litle historical tidbit,existing as a federation of Guatemala,Nicaragua,El Salvador,Cost Rica,Honduras and a new state called Los Altos.It existed for 15 years (1823 – 1838) and had its own curency and had ca. 14 presidents.Its one of those things in history most people don't know about.

I just wondered if anyone's ever heard of a book on the subject?
