Featured in PBS' American Experience, television's most-watched history series, this graphic created circa 1906 charts the scale, effort required, and physical path of the creation of the Panama Canal. Started by the French in 1880 this great feat of engineering was completed by the United States in 1914. This graphic provides a detailed comparison of the amount of excavation for each country as well as a beautiful map of the complete canal.
