The Explosion of the Maine Patrick O.

February26

Tensions between America and Spain had been high but there were no military conflicts until the American Battleship, USS Maine was sunk by an explosion in Havana harbor. She had been evacuating civilians from Cuba when the explosion happened. American people immediately blamed Spain. At this time yellow journalism was in full swing. This brought America ten times closer to war.
