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.

Name Meaning

English (chiefly Yorkshire and Lancashire): habitational name from any of several places so called, of which the largest are in Lincolnshire, Norfolk, and Suffolk. The place name is from the Old English personal name Inga + hām ‘homestead’. Some authorities believe the first element to be a word meaning ‘the Inguione’, from an ancient Germanic tribe known as the Inguiones.
