The front page of The New York Times after the sinking of the ocean liner Lusitania by a German submarine, along with a notice printed within from the German Embassy in the USA warning against trans-Atlantic travel.

How was the Lusitania different than the battleship Maine?

How did the attack pull America closer to war?
