During the Cuban War for Independence, the USS Maine had been sent to Havana to look out for the interests of the United States.

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.

Age 6

President William McKinley was shot at the Temple of Music, in the Pan-American Exposition, while shaking hands with the public.

After his death, Congress passed legislation to officially make the Secret Service and gave them responsibility for protecting the President at all times.
