World Events (8)

1875 · A Treaty with Hawaii

Age 1

In the Mid 1870s, The United States sought out the Kingdom of Hawaii to make a free trade agreement. The Treaty gave the Hawaiians access to the United States agricultural markets and it gave the United States a part of land which later became Pearl Harbor.
1898 · Sinking of USS Maine

Age 24

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.
1905 · Squaw Mountain Fire Lookout

Age 31

In 1905, a fire lookout tower (among the first of its kind) was constructed in Piscataquis County on Squaw Mountain. Due to Maine's abundance of lumber and paper mills, it was essential that a system be developed to help spot fires as quickly as possible.

Name Meaning

English (Lancashire): habitational name from a minor place near Blackpool, so named from Old English norð ‘north’ + cros ‘cross’.
