The most renowned explosion in U.S. history took place on 15 February 1898 when USS Maine blew up in Havana harbor, killing 260 American servicemen. An official U.S. Navy investigation concluded that the explosion was the product of an underwater mine, and within weeks the United States and Spain were at war. February marks the 125th anniversary of this seminal historical event.
