Abstract: This research deals with the direct intervention of the United States of America in the internal affairs of the Republic of Nicaragua during the period 1909-1912, this intervention that stood behind it and was fueled by motives and justifications associated with the policy that the then American President William Howard Taft decided to pursue and made it a method for his foreign policy, which is dollar diplomacy that was aimed at ensuring the rule Friendly governments that protect economic, commercial and strategic interests in the "Central America" region. These interests were exposed to danger due to the actions of Nicaraguan President Jose Zelaya, especially when he decided to open the doors of Nicaragua to European investors and companies, not to American investors or companies. The matter that aroused the concern and anger of the United States of America, which sought to isolate him and remove him from power, taking advantage of the enemies that he gained during his rule and the outbreak of the revolution in Nicaragua, in which the United States of America found an opportunity to overthrow him, and this is what happened in 1910. After that, the conservative government of Estrada took over the governor of the Far East region of Nicaragua. In power, the United States agreed to support Estrada, on the condition that a Constituent Assembly was elected to write the constitution. After agreeing to this condition, the United States recognized a conservative-liberal coalition system headed by Estrada for the period 1911-1912.Key words : United States of America , Republic of Nicaragua , Jose Zelaya , Estrada , American documents , eastern Nicaragua .، Position ، Islamic ، Magazine،Palestine ، Issue،( AL-Najaf : War) ، defence
