Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

Red, white and blue stars and stripes swirl around a U.S. shield and a sepia-toned depiction of the famous battleship, flying a red, white and blue American flag. The ship was blown up in the Cuban Harbor on February 15, 1898. 260 men were killed, and the Spanish-American War began. The loss of the American ship and its sailors was widely reported, some say exploited, by U.S. newspapers, particularly those published by William Hearst. The event caused many Americans to angrily react with the rallying cry, "Remember the Maine" and was subsequently commemorated in a variety of forms, including lithographs, paintings, banners, postage stamps, even tattoo designs.
