USS Maine Monument

Local nameUSS Maine Monument
LocationNew York City, USA

USS Maine was a United States Navy ship that sank in Havana Harbor during the Cuban revolt against Spain, an event that became a major political issue in the United States.

Maine was the first U.S. Navy ship to be named after the state of Maine, commissioned in 1895 and originally classified as an armored cruiser. She was built in response to the Brazilian battleship Riachuelo and the increase of naval forces in Latin America. Maine and her near-sister ship Texas reflected the latest European naval developments, with the layout of her main armament resembling that of the British ironclad Inflexible and comparable Italian ships.
