    However, the government retained the support of the army, and was eventually able to crush the rebellion on sea and land. The foreign fleet – printed on this map in black – were cruisers from Britain, France, Italy, Germany, Spain, and Argentina, tasked with protecting the interests of their respective nationals in the area during the revolt.
