The Maine Monument, New York. Postcard. N.p., n.d.
U.S.S. Maine Monuments, Havana, Cuba. Postcard. Havana, Cuba: Roberts & Co., n.d.

The continued popular fascination with the Maine attests to the enduring significance of the battle cry "Remember the Maine." Various parts of the ship stand in several public spaces in the United States, including Arlington National Cemetery. American families owned mementos alluding to the Maine, and travelers could visit the Maine monument in Havana and send postcards of it back home.
