Question:

Describe the circumstances that led to the Spanish American war and some of its outcomes.

Melanie D.
Answer:

America's involvement came about as a result of sympathy for the cause of Cuban independence from the Spanish brought on by largely sensationalized news reports and culminating in the sinking of the USS Maine. The war marked an end to Spanish colonial rule in the Americas, thus increasing the US sphere of influence, as well the US acquisition of territories such as Puerto Rico and the Philippines.
