Storyboard Text

  • To begin, one cause of the Spanish American War is America and Imperialism. America expanding and taking different territories could have been a problem with the Spanish owning other territoies
  • The Americans felt bad for Cuba, the Spanish enemy because of the need of Cuban independence, felt bad for the Cubans because they owned tracts of land in Cuba for sugar production, which might have angered the Spanish.
  • Yellow Journalism. Yellow Journalism is journalism that used exciting eye catching headlines instead of factual real content and sources. Conflicts with Cuba and Spain urged newspapers and yellow journalists to create misleading headlines
  • Spain refused to give independence to Cuba because Cuba was one of only 2 colonies that they had left in the Americas. This angered those from Cuba and drew more tension.
  • The destroying of the USS Maine. Some thought it was an accident, others did not. There were fingers pointing at the US themselves, their friends the Cubans, and the Spanish and this created conflict.
  • Spain increasingly taxing Cuba dishonestly. Cuba said they would have been less upset if they had been upset about it, but this also added on and led to the war. Cuba had great reasoning for rebelling against Spain because they needed freedom from the dishonesty and the taxing and needed to be their own.
