PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is a bundle of 2 highly animated, power point presentations on Progressivism & Reform & Reform - The Panama Canal. Both presentations together number 37 slides. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change them to fit your individual needs.

The 48 mile-long waterway known as the Panama Canal allows ships to pass between the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans, saving about 8000 miles from a journey around the southern tip of South America, Cape Horn. The Panama canal did not come about easily.

Completed in 1914, the Panama Canal symbolized U.S. technological prowess and economic power. Although U.S. control of the canal eventually became an irritant to U.S.-Panamanian relations, at the time it was heralded as a major foreign policy achievement.

By the time the canal project was completed, its economic impact had created a new middle class, but new forms of discrimination occurred. Panamanian society had become segregated not only by class but by race and national origin as well. Furthermore, United States commercial competition and political intervention had already begun to generate resentment among Panamanians. This would not be resolved until 1979.

From 1819, Panama was part of the federation and country of Colombia but when Colombia rejected United States plans to build a canal across the Isthmus of Panama, the U.S. supported a revolution that led to the independence of Panama in 1903.

The new Panamanian government authorized French businessman Philippe Bunau-Varilla, to negotiate a treaty with the United States. The Hay-Bunau-Varilla Treaty allowed the U.S. to build the Panama Canal and provided for perpetual control of a zone five-miles wide on either side of the canal.
