美国军舰缅因号是美国第一艘军舰之一,同时也花了超过200万美金的建造费。当哈瓦那发生暴动之后,美国派遣这艘军舰前往古巴运行保护当地美国人的任务。但是当缅因号遭到击沉,而船上354位船员中有266位因此丧生的消息传到美国后,美国人都感到相当震惊。

The U.S.S. Maine was one of the first American battleships and cost more than $2 million to build. The ship had been sent to Cuba after riots broke out in Havana. The Maine was sent to protect American interests there. Americans were shocked when the ship exploded and sank and 266 of the 354-crew members were killed.
