美国军舰缅因号 (U.S.S. Maine) 沉没了
1898215

你有没有玩过战舰游戏?你必须要猜中敌舰藏在哪一个字母底下,才能击沉敌舰。只靠猜测来击沉一艘军舰是相当困难的,即使是游戏也一样。 

嗯,那么如果你知道自己的战舰已经沉没了,但是你得猜测是谁击沉了这艘军舰,那又是怎么样的情况呢?这就是发生在1898215日的情景,当时一场爆炸使得美国军舰缅因号在古巴哈瓦那外海沉没了。


Have you ever played the game Battleship? To sink your opponent's ships you have to guess where the ships lie on a grid of numbers and letters. It isn't easy to sink a battleship just by guessing, even in a game.

Well, what if you already knew that your battleship had sunk, but had to guess who sank it? That is what happened to the United States on February 15, 1898, when an explosion sank the U.S.S. Maine in Havana, Cuba.
