The Panama Canal is a canal connecting the Atlantic and Pacific oceans. It was designed by President Theodore Roosevelt to move people and goods faster. It was a popular traveling route during the famous Gold Rush Era. However, there were a plethora of issues during the process of building it, including diseases such as malaria striking the workers.

Percy Jackson and the Olympians

The Titan's Curse

The Princess Andromeda's crew use it to get to San Francisco as the canal is the fastest way for a ship to travel between coasts. They use the canal, so that Luke Castellan's forces could meet at Mount Othrys, near San Francisco.

The Last Olympian

After the Battle of the Labyrinth, Kronos regenerates his forces and once again uses the Panama Canal to sail back to New York City from the west coast.

Trivia

  • The Panama Canel was built after Theodore Roosevelt managed to stage a revolution in Columbia, which Panama was a part of at the time, and helped the country gain independence. However soon after Roosevelt had the Canal built and issued the surounding area, five miles on either side of the canal, the Panama Canal Zone, which was a territory of the United States from 1903-1979.
