The Treaty of Pinsaqui ends the short but bloody war between Ecuador and Colombia

Central America, 1857, zoomable map
12/30/1863
Disputes between Ecuador, ruled by the conservative Garcia Moreno, and Colombia, under the liberal Tomás de Mosquera, erupted when a Ecuadorian army crossed into Colombia only to meet complete defeat.  The Colombians invaded in turn but the Treaty of Pinsaqui ended the short conflict, restoring affairs to their pre-war status.  (By John Osborne)
