At approximately 9:40–9:45 p.m. on the evening of February 15, 1898, the United States battleship, the USS Maine, exploded while it was in Havana Harbor. This event, though the cause of the explosion is still debated, was instrumental in involving the United States in the Spanish-American War. Our worksheet today shares more about the Spanish-American War and tests our knowledge of William McKinley, President of the U.S. at the time.
