On September 15 1821, the Central American Federation - known today as Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, and Nicaragua -  proclaimed independence from Spain. 


The United States recognized the independence of the Federation of Central American States from Spain on August 4, 1824, when President James Monroe received Antonio Jose Cañas as Envoy Extraordinary and Minister Plenipotentiary.


The federation began to dissolve in 1838 and was all but defunct by the early 1840s. Throughout the 1840s, the United States recognized the independence of the five former components of the Central American Federation in their own right.
