Sioux Falls Free Thinkers endorse Panama Canal for showing how
Americans built the Panama Canal. Not shown is how America took
the canal zone away from its rightful owner, Columbia, using
gunboats and marines. Columbia had no gunboats or
marines so they surrendered the canal zone and
had to try to get the best terms they could.
