Location

**Southern most country in North America**


Rationale for U.S involvement

  • Panamanians were rebelling against the special regulations of martime traffic at ports at the entry to the canal.

  • U.S also est. its own customs, tariffs, & postal services in the zone.

  • We wanted to regain control of the ports of Ancon & Cristobal. All together this involved a reduction of tariffs and the free passage of people and goods


Actions the U.S took in intervening

  • President Teddy Roosevelt visited Panama in November of 1904. The visit resulted in an agreement.

  • We gained control of the ports of Ancon & Cristobal.

  • There was little military conflict needed.


Panama/US relationship

  • They have a bilateral relationship. Meaning… They help each other out back and forth

  • +


Group evaluation:

  • Right thing. We needed to help because they ended up our allies.

  • Benefit: We got lower tariffs, and had ports for things to be shipped in and out. Plus, Panama is our allies today and we help each other out.
