World Events (8)

1898 · War with the Spanish

Age 1

After the explosion of the USS Maine in the Havana Harbor in Cuba, the United States engaged the Spanish in war. The war was fought on two fronts, one in Cuba, which helped gain their independence, and in the Philippines, which helped the US gain another territory for a time.
1898 · Sinking of USS Maine

Age 1

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.
1913 · The Sixteenth Amendment

Age 16

The Sixteenth Amendment allows Congress to collect an income tax without dividing it among the states based on population.

Name Meaning

English (Yorkshire): occupational name for a stable worker, from Old English hors ‘horse’ + mann ‘man’. It is unlikely to have been a nickname for a skilled rider, for in the Middle Ages the maintenance and use of a horse was far beyond the means of the mass of common people.
