Explosion of the USS Maine
Secretary Teddy Roosevlt and the Rough Riders
Interviews on the Crisis

o Who are the rough riders? – The rough Riders are the first voluntary cavalry in the Spanish-American War.
o Who do you think is responsible for the explosion, or do you think it was an accident. – “The Maine was sunk by an act of dirty treachery on the part of the Spaniards I believe.” This was definately not an accident and we will be sure that as long as I am in office, they will pay for what they did.

o What exactly did you and the Rough Riders do about this? – The Rough Riders and I plan to go to war with Spain. The dirty criminals should give back what they stole.

o When are you going to make your next move against Spain? – We plan to take action as soon as we possibly can. Anything is better than letting them get away with this.
o When do you think Spain will make their next move against us? –We do not know when Spain will make their next move against us, but, we do know that we will strike before they even get a chance.

o Why do you think that Spain attacked us? – We believe that Spain attacked us simply for a belligerent hunger for action. This should not be tolerated.
o Why did you choose the Rough Riders to help you? – I choose the Rough Riders to help me because they have pride in their country and are willing to fight for their country.

o How will you ensure that America will be safe from Spain in the future? - As I said before, we have not worked out all the details yet but anyone can ensure that no harm should come to them as long as I am in office.
o How will this affect us in a bad way? – This should not affect us in a bad way, but if something goes wrong you can count on me to make it right.

Spain sabotages the USS Maine while at anchor. In January the USS Maine was sent out to sea to protect American interest during the fight between Spain and Cuban governments. While at anchor on the night of February 15, 1898 the front three magazine rooms exploded and nearly three-quarters of the crew died. We think that it was the Spanish that secretly sabotaged to USS Maine while at anchor. This explosion took place in the middle of the Havana sea; where we were sent to protect the American interests. We think the Spanish did it because they thought we were tricking them instead of protecting the from Cuba. We also think that the way this happened was the Spanish secretly put a bomb into the Maine while we were docked at their harbor before going out on the sea.Then when we were all set and anchored the set the bomb to explode and get ride of us. There is more research and more news to be learned from this terrible incident.
The Treaty of Paris has ended America's war against the inhumane Spanish Empire that started on April 25, 1898 after Spain destroyed our beloved battleship the USS Maine. Along with ending war with America, Spain surrendered their control of Cuba, Puerto Rico, Guam, the Philippines, and Spain's other colonized territories in the Atlantic and Pacific oceans to the United States. Only to get the Philippines, Spain ordered us to pay them $20 million dollars, but of course at first we said no, but America is kind and courteous so we decided to pay them. On December 10 1898, the treaty was signed. The Treaty of Paris didn't come into effect until April 11, 1899. Jose Marti was a Cuban revolutionary that led Cuba's rebellion that started in 1890. Emilio Aguinaldo was the second leader of the Filipino revolts and resistance against Spain. At this time, president William McKinley was the leader of America and the American signer of the treaty of Paris. The Spanish leaders, prime minister Praxedes Mateo Sagasta and Monarch Alfonso XIII, signed it too. The Treaty of Paris was made and signed because Spain and America wanted to end the war that was started by the monstrous Spanish Empire. Spain was losing the war, America wanted to end war, and get all of the old Spanish territories, so the United States agreed to Spain's terms.
The American Herald

America Must Annex The Philippines!
America needs to annex the Pacific island group the Philippines! America has to take in the Philippines as a territory, establish our own government, calm the Filipino rebels, and move in our businessmen, citizens, and soldiers. We should annex the Philippines because it will give us more resources, areas to make military bases, and another strategic territory in the Pacific. The Philippines are located in the east Pacific near Indonesia, Siam, and Japan. It is a country in Asia bordered by the Pacific ocean and the East China Sea. The Treaty of Paris was signed just one year ago, 1898, which ended the Spanish American war . It is now 1899, and we have just become an imperialist world power. The next step is to annex the Philippines right now. The U.S. should annex Emilio Aguinaldo's newly independent from Spain and given to America 's country, the Philippines. America needs to annex the Philippines because it will give the U.S. a great military advantage over the east Pacific and east Asia; America will become a or be a stronger world power. If the United States had that area then we could make money from the Filipino crops and resources, and we can make ports there to tax anyone that stops there.
Map of Naval Battles
Richard Harding Davis
These men were not like regular soldiers. They had no sparkling guns, and were not arranged carefully in the right order. There were a few men in ahead of the others, They were bunched together, and cautiously climbing up the steep, sunny hill. Fires raged across the scorched hilltops. The men held their guns close to their chests and stomped their feet as they stampeded up the hills. Behind the first group of men, spreading out like a fan, were lines of men, slipping and stumbling in the smooth grass, performing the difficulty of moving up the hill. One would have though as though they were wading waist high through water if they didn't know better.They were moving slowly and carefully, with great effort. They walked closer to their deaths every step, many of them, as they advanced, abruptly falling and disappearing in the high grass, but the others' trudged on, stubbornly, forming a thin blue line that kept inching further and further up the hill. It was a miracle how they made it so far without all getting shot down. At last, after a battle that left many dead, the zeal of the miraculous victory raged throughout the hills.
