The Spanish American War is an interesting war because most of us don't know much about it. It is one of those in between wars. It was between the Civil War and World War I, and it occurred around 1900 in Cuba.
The picture above shows the U.S.S. Maine entering the Harbor of Havana. A short time later, the U.S.S. Maine blew up. It is not exactly clear what caused the explosion, but it was the trigger for the Spanish Americn War.
