U.S. Intervention in Haiti, 1994 - Collection Finding Aid



In 1991, a Haitian military regime overthrew the elected President, Jean-Bertrand Arisitide. The US military intended to forcibly remove this regime in 1994 via Operation Uphold Democracy. As US armed forces prepared to engage in this Operation in September 1994, a diplomatic mission led by President Carter convinced the Haitian military regime to allow President Aristide to return to power. The diplomatic mission consisted of President Carter, Senator Sam Nunn, and General Colin Powell. Operation Uphold Democracy then switched missions from a combat to a peace-keeping and nation-building mission. The new mission of Operation Uphold Democracy lasted from September 19, 1994 to March 31, 1995. The Operation consisted of U.S. troops and the UN organized Multinational Force (MNF). This collection consists of bulletins, cables, correspondence, email, memoranda, news clippings, press releases, reports, and talking points related to the 1994 U.S. intervention in Haiti associated with Operation Uphold Democracy.
