Product Overview

Remember the Maine!

266 American lives were lost, two nations plunged into war and a new world power was created.

This comprehensive documentary from The History Channel examines the world-shaping events of the Spanish-American War. Much more than just armed forces destroying one another, it was this nation's first foray into international intervention, a testing-ground for Manifest Destiny.

The events precipitating the Spanish-American War and during it serve as lenses on this exhilarating period - the dawn of the American Century - when the nation was still finding itself after the Civil War, discovering its place on the world stage, enjoying unimaginable prosperity and producing the most fascinating public figures in modern history.

Household names like Stephen Crane, Frederick Remington, Admiral George Dewey and Clara Barton litter this sweeping account. While Hearst and Pulitzer waged a war of words, Dr. Walter Reed struggled against exotic diseases in Cuba and discovered the cure for malaria. And history-makers like Admiral George Dewey, President McKinley and Lt. Colonel Theodore Roosevelt shaped the very planet.

With victories everywhere from its own backyard in Cuba to the far-flung Philippine Islands, America's national self-image changed rapidly. The Spanish-American War marked the beginning of a tradition of international intercession that can still be felt today.

With dramatic accounts, incisive analysis and authoritiative interviews with world-class experts, this wide-ranging documentary continues The History Channel tradition of unprecedented programming. After enjoying this chronicle you will be left with a deep understanding of the Spanish-American War and of our nation's place in the world.
