The mast of the Battleship MAINE at Arlington National Cemetery commemorating the 266 men who lost their lives in the sinking of the MAINE on February 15, 1898, in Havana Harbor. Although no definitive cause has been found for the destruction of the MAINE, its loss inflamed public opinion and was a critical event leading to the Spanish-American War.
