Panama Conference of 1826

Simon Bolivar called for a conference of all Latin American republics to be held in Panama in 1826. By including Haiti on the invitation list, the conference drew the wrath of Southern states, to whom the notion of a legitimate, independent republic of former slaves as anathema. American delegates did not attend the conference, which in any case did not result in the united Latin America that Bolivar hoped for.
