The Spanish–American War (Template:Lang-es or Template:Lang; Template:Lang-fil) was an armed conflict between Spain and the United States in 1898. Hostilities began in the aftermath of the internal explosion of Template:USS in Havana Harbor in Cuba, leading to U.S. intervention in the Cuban War of Independence. The war led to emergence of U.S. predominance in the Caribbean region, and resulted in U.S. acquisition of Spain's Pacific possessions. That led to U.S. involvement in the Philippine Revolution and ultimately in the Philippine–American War.
