America's first stop on the way toward becoming a 20th-century superpower might have been a harbor in Havana, Cuba. In 1898, the USS Battleship Maine arrived there and was soon blown up and sunk, a mysterious event that drove America into war with Cuba's brutal colonial power, Spain. Using both newly shot simulations and actual footage more than a century old, this program dramatically recreates a pivotal conflict in U.S. history, one that brought the country an easy victory, a slew of overseas possessions, and a new concern with external affairs. Still, did Spain really sink the Maine and ignite all that followed? Students will leave the program debating that fascinating, still unanswered question.
