PLZ!!!!! I need some help!!!! I kinda know why they wanted to build it, but not into detail:(Explain how the United States was able to build the Panama Canal

(Think about: What did the United States have to do or go through before they could build it? Why did they want the canal? How long did the United States have control of it?)
