This is a 13 slide, highly animated, power point presentations on Progressivism & Reform - Panama Canal Today . Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change it 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.
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.
