Stories from the United States' relationship with the Panama Canal, in celebration of its centenary

The Spooner Act was approved in June 1902 by the Congress of the United States. The law authorized President Theodore Roosevelt to acquire all French properties (mainly the property of the Panama railway) amounting to 40 million dollars. The Spooner act also allowed the American Government to negotiate with the Colombian Government. This negotiation was done through the Hay-Herran treaty.
