VFW TO OBSERVE THE SINKING OF THE USS MAINE 

The Spanish-American War lasted a little less than four months, April 21st – August 13th, 1898 and ended Spain’s worldwide empire.  It ended with America easily defeating Spain and signaled the United States emergence as a world power.  The blowing up of the battleship USS Maine in Havana harbor on February 15th, 1898 with the loss of 266 crewmen and marines in essence was the start of the war.
