A total of 1,177 sailors and marines were killed on USS Arizona themorning of December 7, 1941. This represents the greatest loss oflife in U.S. Naval history, and more than half of the 2,335 U.S.servicemen from the Army, Navy and Marine Corps killed during thePearl Harbor attack. One question still… haunts visitors to theArizona Memorial even to this day. Why were the dead not removed?Initially, about 105 bodies were removed, but because the ship wasnever raised, the remainder could not. The priority at that timewas salvage of ships that could be repaired -- the Arizona was notin that category. As a result, the bodies deteriorated to the pointof not being identifiable. Even as late as 1947, requests were madein regard to removal of the dead, but rejected. They are consideredburied at sea by the US Navy. The battleships Oklahoma, Arizona andtarget ship Utah were sunk during the attack; battleshipsCalifornia and West Virginia, and minelayer Oglala were sunk butlater raised and returned to service. The battleships Nevada,Pennsylvania, Tennessee and Maryland, cruisers Raleigh, Honoluluand Helena, destroyers Cassin, Shaw and Downes, and auxiliary shipsCurtiss and Vestal were damaged but repaired. A total of 98 Navalaircraft were lost, as well as 64 Army aircraft. Only 1,158 peoplesurvived. (MORE)

United States Ship. It is also used for every other U.S. ship, not only for the Maine.
The USS Maine exploded in the Cuban harbor. The United Statesnewspapers blamed Spain. The Spanish-American War was a result.
It is unlikely that Spain bombed the USS Maine. It was probably an explosion that resulted from a coal bunker fire that ignited a gunpowder magazine.
The battleship Maine exploded in Havana harbor on February 15,1898. The commander of the USS Maine at the time was CharlesSigsbee. This event triggered the onset of the Spanish-AmericanWar, although it certainly wasn't the main cause of the conflict.
Nobody for sure knows who or why the USS Maine exploded. Witness reports say that she blew up out of no where. The U.S & Cuba blamed Spain as the responsible one for destroying the battleship.Possible reasons for the explosion a the sinking of the USS Maine is a mechanical error or a fire in one o…f the coal bunkers. There was an error in the engine room the set of an explosion on the ship which led to a chain reaction and it continued until the front of the ship was dismantled. (MORE)
1,177 men lost their lives on the U.S.S Arizona during the attack of Pearl Harbor
The Spanish-American War , 1898, was directly preceded by the destruction of the USS Maine in Havana Harbor, Cuba.
There is no definite answer. At the time, the story of sabotage by the Spanish was used as an excuse to declare war. Many people today believe it was a dust explosion in the coal bunker... an accident.
i think the US is known for being a country where you can be any religion, so there is a wide range, but this country was founded on Protestant morals so i would say Protestant.
The Civil War was one of the deadliest on record. There were about620,000 soldiers who died while the war was being fought.
266 died total - 260 during the explosion or soon after, and 6 more died later from the injuries they received.. (taken from http://www.history.navy.mil/faqs/faq71-1.htm)
It remains a mystery to this day. The original cause was attributed to a mine. Since then, it has been speculated that it sank as the result of a fire in a coal bunker or that she was deliberately sunk to get the U.S. in war with Spain .
Approximately 215, give or take another 20 or so. But this number is specifically referring to "Darth Vader" and doesn't count any of the killings he was responsible for while he was still Anakin Skywalker. That said, the number does include the execution of Count Dooku, and the massacre of the …Tusken Raiders since during both of those incidents Anakin drew on the power of the Dark Side. Also, this number is the amount of people who were literally killed by Vader's Blade, not by his Stormtroopers or during military battles that he was involved in. It also doesn't include the murder of Emperor Palpatine, since that occurred after his redemption and "return" to Anakin Skywalker. (MORE)
The battleship blew up while docked in Havana harbor, while Cubawas a rebellious Spanish colony. Newspapers in the US characterizedits sinking as sabotage by the Spanish, and public opinion led theUS to declare war on Spain in April, 1898.
It was a second line, 13 year old battleship or armored cruiser that had been sent to Havana on standby to provide protection for American citizens and property.
The USS Maine blew up on the 15th of February at 9:40 p.m. It killed at least 260 men that were aboard the ship at the time.
Yellow journalism played a big role in this. MAny Americans thought that the spanish blew up the USS Maine, but it was never proven. It was probably just an explosion of gun poder int eh bottom of the ship. this basically started the Spanish - American War

From my point of view, I would say about 400,000 - 1.5 million during the past decades. If you're talking about the Vietnam war I would say less.
In the Battle of Antietam there were 22,700 casualties. . 12,400 Union . 10,300 Confederate Note: This statistic does not include the number of horses killed
The USS Maine was a battleship that was anchored in Havanna Harbor when it blew up. The cause of the explosion is still not certain, but it was a catastrophie. The unexplained explosion was used as a catalyst to precipitate the US and Spain into a war.
No one is certain to the cause. It was originally believed that it was the result of a Spanish attack on the ship, possibly a torpedo or a mine. It is possible that it was an explosion, that the engine got to hot
The USS Maine was a battleship. Like all navy vessels, it was created to enable the protection of the rights of the country that built it. The navy allows the country to project power throughout the world.
Because America was on an Imperialist footing in 1898 (trying to expand as a new world power) and was looking for a reason (excuse) to declare war on Spain, as Spain owned territory that the US wanted at the time (Philippines, Guam, Puerto Rico, Cuban ports, etc.). As Randolph Hearst (Hearst Newspa…per) inferred it, "...you supply the war, I'll supply the story!" The Spanish-American War of 1898 was referred to (by the press) as the "Splendid Little War"; it gained the US territories with very small casualties and only lasted 6 months. The war also re-united the American people from the after effects of the US Civil War (American Civil War). Operation Desert Storm of (Jan-Feb) 1991 was referred to (by the press) as the "100 Hour War"; it reinstated US prestige in the eyes of the world, had very small casualties (less than 200) and only lasted 45 days. The campaign re-united the American people from the after effects of the Vietnam War (President Bush Senior: "...We have beat the Vietnam syndrome...the American people are united once again." Both wars that divided the US occurred in the 60's; both conflicts that re-united the US occurred in the 90's. History does repeat itself. (MORE)
A large hole was blasted in the keel below the waterline of the USSMaine. It sank to the bottom of Havana Harbor and remained thereuntil it was raised some years later and then scuttled in theFlorida Straits.
Because the unexplained explosion was used as a catalyst to precipitate the US and Spain into a war.
It exploded and sank on February 15, 1898. On the Havana Harbor. It was headed to Cuba to protect American's there.
The USS Maine was built at the New York Naval Shipyard in Brooklyn, New York.
Its sinking in Havana Harbor, Cuba was blamed on the Spain and helped precipitate the start of the Spanish-American War.
Well the US government maintained the ship was sunk by a Spanish mine. This was made popular by war mongering media outlets. In truth, the matter is still controversial. Conspiracy theorists have argued that the US government in fact blew up the ship to give a pretext for war. However Admiral Rickov…er conducted an investigation in 1976 and believed it was simply an accident which the US then used as a pretext for war. "The case of USS Maine was reopened in 1976, by Admiral Hyman G. Rickover who believed that modern science might be able to provide an answer to the ship's loss. After consulting experts and reexamining the documents from the first two investigations, Rickover and his team concluded that the damage was inconsistent with that caused by a mine. Rickover stated that the most likely cause was a coal dust fire. In the years after Rickover's report, his findings have been disputed and to this day there has been no final answer as to what caused the explosion." (MORE)
It is said Scylla ate thousands of men as they passed by or tried to fight her. In particular, 6 of Odysseus' men were eaten as they came home from the Siege of Troy.
There were 429 deaths on the USS Oklahoma when it was attacked at Pearl Harbor.
34 were killed. The attack was most likely an accident, as claimed. Israel had no reason then, and no reason now to attack an American naval vessel. The United States and Israel have enjoyed a sense of cooperation and arms deals, at least up until the recent insults against Israel by the Obama admin…istration. (MORE)

Polyphemus kills and eats 6 of his men.2 the first night they are there,2 for breakfast and then 2 for dinner.
Both ships were the catalyst that brought the US into war. The sinking of the USS Maine brought us into the Spanish American War. And the Lusitania brought us into World War 1.
Estimates range from 20 million people killed all the way up to 100 million people killed by Attila.

It was a United States ship. A clue is in the name. American ships include those belonging to every other country in north and south America.
No one was reponsible for the uss main explosion. United states says it was spain but I think it was really an issue witht he ship and it misht have exploded by itself.
The USS Maine was an American battleship. She was destroyed on February 15, 1898 in Havana Harbor. 266 men died. The sinking of the Maine served as a catalyst for the Spanish American War.
the events before and after were tense and after the explosion of the USS Maine was explosive and sop that caused the USS to go to war against Spain.
The objective of the USA, and it's allies, in South Vietnam (from 1945 to 1975) was to try and keep the country free and independent, as they did in South Korea from 1950 to the present. Unfortunately, the government of South Vietnam was corrupt and incapable of defending themselves, so they fell in… 1975 after a 55 day invasion by North Vietnam. It's not possible to keep a country free and independent if it can't, or will not, fight to defend themselves. (MORE)

No one knows. The explosion is now believed to have occurred due toan accident -- a coal fire next to an ammunition magazine. However, conspiracy theories have included some that believe USfactions blew up the ship to deliberately start the war, or thatCuban nationalists blew it up to provoke the US… to expel theSpanish from the island. In any event, those with the least to gainwould have been the Spanish, because they were not prepared todefend against an attack from the large US military forces. (MORE)
The USS Maine was 318 feet long with a breadth of 57 feet and an average draft of 21.5 feet. It had a displacement of 6,648 tons, and its armor was 12 inches on the sides, 8 inches on the turrets, and about 11 inches on the barbettes.
Technically, those who died on the U.S.S. Maine were sailors andmarines, not soldiers. 229 of them are buried at Arlington.
The United States government claimed that the USS Maine was sunk bya Spanish mine in Havana Harbor in Cuba. However, evidence pointsto an explosion in a powder magazine. This lead to the sinking ofthe ship and the US and Spain going to war.
