    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.

    Name Meaning

    English: of Norman origin, a nickname for someone who habitually wore a distinctive pair of boots or gaiters, from Old French hosed, hoset, housé, Middle English hosey, hus(s)y,‘booted, gaitered’ (from Latin hosatus).

    English: status name or nickname from Middle English hus(e)wyf ‘mistress of a family; wife of a householder’ (a compound of Old English hūs ‘house’ + wīf ‘woman’). Though originally a woman's name, it is often found as a male surname, presumably in a derogatory sense. The vocabulary word became hussie, with the meaning ‘disreputable woman’, in the 16th century; the surname, however, is not associated with this meaning.

    Irish: shortened Anglicized form of Gaelic Ó hEodhusa ‘descendant of Eodhus’. This was the name of a bardic family associated with the Maguires of Fermanagh, also Anglicized as Oswell or Oswald .
