Storyline

"Taken in Havana Harbor from a moving launch, and shows the wreck of the 'Maine' surrounded by wrecking boats and other vessels. The warped and twisted remains show how thoroughly this immense mass of iron and steel was blown out of all semblance of a vessel. The background of this picture is formed by the shores of Havana Harbor, and as the yacht moves around, a panoramic view of the shores adds an interesting feature." Written by Edison Catalog (1898)

Wreck of the Battleship "Maine" (1898)

The Battleship Maine was destroyed during the Cuban revolt against Spain and this Edison film shows some of the aftermath. When you're watching movies from this era you can't expect any sort of story or very much for that matter. Basically the camera is set up to capture some moving footage and this here is what was shown to people. Basically we see the battleship being towed and that's in. This clocks in just under a minute and from a history standpoint it's fascinating getting to see this footage and especially when you know the history behind it.
