Storyboard of what may have happened when the U.S.S. Maine mysteriously exploded in Havana Harbor.
In The U.S.A...
The Spanish are keeping control of Cuba! How can we get them to leave so that WE can colonize it?
We must act quickly! Who knows what our Southern neighbors are planning!
Meanwhile, In Cuba...
You know, I really wish the Spanish would leave our Island.
(Note: I couldn't find a proper picture of a ship, so I just made one with pre-set pictures)
They don't exactly contribute much... (Besides Disease, Ugh.)
Speaking of the U.S... is it just me or is that American ship...on fire?
At this point, I'm almost HOPING for the U.S.A. to intervene...
Back in the U.S.A...
Hey, Why don't we declare war on them? We can pretend to want to give Cubans Democracy...
[ April 21, 1898 ]
...While we actually loot them of all their resources! You're brilliant, John!
Back in Cuba (Again...)
Oh my god, the ship exploded!
Back in the U.S.A. (Again...)
What's that!? The U.S.S. Maine exploded?! It must have been the Spanish!
The nerve of them! Come now, John, we must publicly declare war on them!
But what can we declare war on them for...?
Oh well, at least there weren't any Spanish Ships nearby, or else they would declare war.
