One of the largest and most difficult engineering projects ever undertaken, the Panama Canal greatly reduced the time for ships to travel between the Atlantic and Pacific oceans, avoiding thousands of miles of travel and the hazardous Cape Horn and the Strait of Magellan. The United States took on the project in 1904 and opened the canal on August 15, 1914.
