Congress of Panama First Held

Congress of Panama was the hemispheric diplomatic conference held in 1826 by President of Gran Colombia and Peru, Simon Bolivar. The general conference led to the unification of all the territories of Latin America, but only Colombia, Peru, Mexico, and Central America sent representatives. An alliance treaty was signed proposing a future establishment of a biannual continental congress and a common army and navy. The 1827 civil war put an end to Bolivar’s hopes.
