Who were the leaders of the nicaraguan revolution?

In 1961, Carlos Fonseca Amador, Silvio Mayorga and Tomás Borge Martínez formed the FSLN (Sandinista National Liberation Front) with other student activists at the National Autonomous University of Nicaragua (UNAN) in Managua. The Nicaraguan revolution was led by the Sandinistas. Among its leaders were Carlos Fonseca and future Nicaraguan president Daniel Ortega. They would lead the Sandinistas in the guerrilla war against the Somoza regime in the 1970s.

The Nicaraguan revolution was ultimately responsible for the death of 2% of the Nicaraguan population, that is, 50,000 people. Although the Nicaraguan Civil War would end in 1927, Sandino would continue to wage a war against Nicaraguans and against the United States. The Nicaraguan revolution took place in the 1970s, following the misuse of aid funds by Nicaraguan President Anastasio Somoza.
