Spain signs a treaty confirming the independence the Republic of Honduras had won in 1821.

Honduras, 1857
03/15/1866

Queen Isabella II of Spain and the Republic of Honduras signed a treaty that confimed officially and finally the independence of the central American nation from the Spanish Empire.  In reality, Honduras had gained their independence in 1821, but with this agreement, Spain gave up all claims to its former colony.  (By John Osborne)
