17 x 22" The USS Maine, was sunk in Havana Harbor on Feb 15th 1898, & led to the Spanish American War. This memorial plaque was cast from the recovered bronze propeller. Tablet #552 of 1000. Also cast was a 20' bronze eagle. In 1926, the US & Cuban government erected a memorial to the victims of Maine on the Malecon, near the Hotel Nacional in commemoration of the assistance of the United States in acquiring Cuba's independence from Spain. The memorial was damaged by crowds following the Bay of Pigs Invasion in 1961 and the eagle on top was pulled down, chained to a truck, & dragged around Havana in protest. The Communist government then added its own inscription blaming "imperialist voracity in its eagerness to seize the island of Cuba" for the Maine disaster.
