How did the USA get into a war with Spain that neither the President, Congress, business leaders nor Spain wanted? Join Charles Breiner of Claryville to learn about the role of Theodore Roosevelt before and during the war, and why the Battleship USS Oregon captured headlines for 67 days. The unintended consequences of the war that lasted well into the twentieth century will also be discussed.
