Description

Since the disintegration of the Great Colombia, the Isthmus fought for its independence with little success until 1903. The separation of Panama from Colombia was formalised on 3 November 1903, with the establishment of the Republic of Panama. Due to the jungles and lack of development and the proper means of transportation and communications, the news that "Gran Colombia" had disintegrated did not reach Panama soon enough, causing the Isthmus to end up attached to the then formed Republic of Colombia.
