Overview

Labelled a 'splendid little war' by Senator John Hay, the Spanish American War (1898) was a peculiar event in America's history, provoked as much by the press as by political pressures.

The war was to mark the end of Spanish sovereignty in her 'New World', and the establishment of the United States of America as a world power.
