Amber’s project presents a story map that spatializes the elements and events leading to the Nicaraguan Revolution. Drawing upon the in-depth analysis of primary sources in Matilde Zimmermann’s book, Sandinista: Carlos Fonseca and the Nicaraguan Revolution, this visualization outlines the ideological developments prior to the revolution in contrast to the actual actions of the Sandinista National Liberation Front (FSLN) government. By providing background on the life of Carlos Fonseca as well as including a variety of primary sources from the time, she hopes readers will develop their own hypotheses on what happened when FSLN actually ruled.
