Many Americans, especially those from the South, perceive Lincoln and the Union forces as "invaders". Lee was, of course, leading a Confederate "invasion" of Pennsylvania in the Gettysburg campaign; thus both sides in the US Civil war can be construed as "American Invaders".

In our work America Invades we write, "In 1953, President Eisenhower authorized a CIA-led coup against Mossadeq in favor of Shah Mohammad Reza Pahlavi. Kermit Roosevelt
(Teddy Roosevelt’s son) was put in charge of Operation Ajax, and funds were used by the CIA to recruit Iranian mobs, which eventually helped drive Mossadeq from office. Eisenhower subsequently awarded Kermit Roosevelt the National Security Medal in a closed-door ceremony in December 1953." Source: America Invades, Kelly / Laycock, 2014, www.amzn.com/1940598427.
