The United States occupation of Veracruz, which began with the Battle of Veracruz, the chief port on the east coast of Mexico, lasted for six months and was a response to the Tampico Affair of April 9, 1914. The incident came in the midst of poor diplomatic relations between Mexico and the United States, and was related to the ongoing Mexican Revolution.
