With the success of the construction of the Suez Canal, Ferdinand de Lesseps, more than seventy years old, is convinced to revive the operation in the isthmus of Panama - territory then Colombian.

This second project, which was much more complex and fraught with difficulties, caused the shareholders to lose a lot of money. Ferdinand de Lesseps, will be sentenced to five years in prison, which was broken and not returned. Lesseps died in 1894 without knowledge of the trial. A statue of him is erected in Panama.
