On February 15, 1898, the ship Maine exploded in the harbor of Havana, Cuba, killing hundreds of crew members. Without approval, Roosevelt sent out orders to several naval vessels, directing them to prepare for war. George Dewey, who had received an appointment to lead the Asiatic Squadron with the backing of Roosevelt, later credited his victory at the Battle of Manila Bay to Roosevelt's orders.
