If you could go back in time and somehow avert any tragedy in history what incident would you choose to prevent?

I'd prevent the Maine from being blown up, because the Spanish-American war was purely a publicity stunt used to gain more land and money by the united states against a crippled foe and led to the murder by americans directly or indirectly of over 5 million indigenous peoples in the carribian and pacific.

Why this and not anythign else? Because every other horrible event in history led to some great good being done either as a result of it or in its name.

I know very little about the Spanish-American war. Now I'm going to go and read up on it. Thank you for informing me a little about the tragedy.
