The U.S Navy Monument The U.S. Navy Plot, which was dedicated on December 11, 1898, contains as its centerpiece a bronze sailor in a Spanish-American War uniform. The monument, paid for by citizens of Key West in memory of sailors killed in Havana, was unveiled on March 15, 1900.
Buried in the plot are 27 victims of the USS Maine explosion. Marble markers for 144 other casualties from the Maine, Winslow, or Salem are nearby.
