entirely from scratch materials (wood, cardboard, newspaper), no model or pre

(ACR-1) was the Navy'ssecond commissioned battleshipand the first U.S. Navy ship to be named after the state of Maine.
The Maine is best known for
her catastrophic loss in Havana Harboron the evening of 15 February 1898. Sent to protect U.S. interests during the
Cuban revolt against Spain, she exploded suddenly without warning and sank
quickly, killing nearly three quarters of her crew. The cause and
responsibility for her sinking remained unclear after a board of inquiry.
Nevertheless, popular opinion in the U.S., fanned by inflammatory articles
printed in the "Yellow Pages"by William Randolph Herst, blamed
Spain. The phrase "Remember the Maine, to Hell with Spain!" became a
rallying cry for action, which came with the Spanish-American Warlater that year. While the sinking of the Maine was not a direct cause for action, it served as a catalyst,
accelerating the approach to a diplomatic impasse between the U.S. and Spain.
