Panama Independent From Columbia
A revolution led by Philippe Jean Bunau-Varilla, an organizer of the Panama Canal Company, declared Panama independent from Columbia. U.S. naval forces prevented the Colombians from suppressing the revolt. On November 17th, the Hay-Bunau-Varilla Treaty was signed between Panama and the U.S. giving the Americans exclusive rights over the Canal Zone.
