        Panama Canal - Primary Resources: Roosevelt's Message to Congress

        Learn about Theodore Roosevelt's assessment of the progress of the Panama Canal in 1906. The first time in U.S. history that a sitting president had left the country, Roosevelt's trip was covered extensively by the press. Upon his return to Washington, Roosevelt described his first-hand observations to Congress and announced a restructuring of the Isthmian Canal Commission that would prove crucial to the management and efficiency of the project.
