July 12, 1920
One of the openings of the Panama Canal
The Panama Canal was officialyy opened by President Woodrow Wilson on July 12, 1920.
The most interesting part of this historical event seems to be that the Panama Canal opened almost six years earlier on August 15, 1912. the delay between the "opening" and the "official opening" had to do with "clean-up operations and minor problems."
