During the Cuban War for Independence, the USS Maine had been sent to Havana to look out for the interests of the United States. On February 15, 1898, at approximately 21:40, an explosion on USS Maine was caused by roughly 5 long tons of powder. The front of the ship was demolished and the remains quickly sunk to the bottom of the ocean. 260 men lost their lives in the explosion itself, with at least six more dying afterwards from related injuries. The event kicked off an atmosphere of contention that would eventually lead to the Spanish-American War.
