In early November 1928 the Marines oversee a peaceful national election in Nicaragua, which Liberal candidate José Moncada wins. After the election, Feland remains in Nicaragua, and the campaign against Sandino and his followers continues. Feland initiates a survey of Marine Corps practices in Nicaragua and distributes a questionnaire among his subordinate officers, some of whom, in the 1930s, will develop a Marine Corps Small Wars Manual. Admiral Sellers and General Feland clash with Minister Eberhardt and Elias Beadle, the Marine Corps officer who heads the Guardia Nacional and reports to the Nicaraguan government (much to Feland's dismay). Other controversies erupt, including one involving Feland's aide-de-camp, Arthur Challacombe. Eventually Feland, Sellers, Beadle, and Eberhardt move on to new assignments. Katherine Feland travels to Nicaragua to accompany her husband when he returns to the United States in April 1919.
