Panama Independence!

Panama celebrates its Independence Day today. They revel in two centuries free of colonial rule, however it was on November 3, 1903 they called for independence and entered into treaty with the United States. There are actually two "Independence" days for Panama, November 3rd and November 28th. The former being the day they celebrate freedom from Colombia. The latter is when they were freed of Spanish rule.
