Crew members of the USS Dolphin were arrested on 9 April by forces of the Mexican dictator Victoriano Huerta. Although the Americans were later released, Huerta insulted the United States by failing to honor a request to salute the American flag in apology. Still pursuing an apology, American forces bombarded the port of Vera Cruz on 21 April. The tensions helped cause Huerta's abdication on 15 July (Link 1954).
