The Spanish-American War (1898) resulted in the United States gaining control over Spanish colonies such as Cuba (until 1902), the Philippines (until 1946), and Puerto Rico.

There are various associated controversies, such as the cause of the sinking of the USS Maine in Havana Harbor in Cuba, the role of the mass media, and the mass media depiction of the US "Rough Riders" regiment and later US President Theodore Roosevelt.

Less seldom mention aspects include the role of the Jewish Joseph Pulitzer in anti-Spanish propaganda in the mass media, Jewish participants in the Rough Riders, then Assistant Secretary of the Navy Theodore Roosevelt's pro-Jewish views and actions, and some Jews viewing the war as a revenge for claimed past Spanish mistreatment of Jews.[1][2]
