The Spanish-American War was a military conflict in 1898 and 1899 between the United States and Spain, and was vital in securing the independence of Cuba, Puerto Rico and the Philippines, Spanish colonies.

The war was caused by the sinking of the USS Maine in Havana Harbor after it had been ordered to take all American citizens out of Cuba. The Congress sent an ultimatum to Madrid, demanding Cuban independence, but Spain responded by declaring War.

The war was won.

Background
