Why? The US knew that there was so problems stirring around in Spain, so they sent in the battleship USS Oregon towards Cuba. The biggest issue was that it took the USS Oregon sixty (60) days to reach Cuba. Within those sixty (60) day, war had already been declared. This sparked the much needed conversations about way to travel a lot quicker. They had eventually came up with the idea of connecting the Atlantic and the Pacific through Central America. The building of this canal would speed up our way of transportation.

Causes Initially the Colombian government gave permission to a french man to dig out he canal, but he failed because he went bankrupt and did not have the correct tools. Once Roosevelt become president, Congress passed the Spooner Act, which approved the building of the canal. At first the Colombian government did not approve the contract. I was not until Panama gained its independence, did the US begin to dig out the canal.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
