The purpose of my research is to inform the reader about one of the worst tragedies in history, the sinking of the Titanic. Purpose
No other ship has captured the worlds attention quite like the titanic ship. Constructed to be unsinkable, this first class ocean liner set sail on April 10, 1912. The Wreck of The Titanic
As the passengers boarded the gangplank at Southampton, England, little did they know that in just a few short days their names and the Titanic would be remembered forever.
The Titanic ship voyage began heading out to sea. The ships builders had spared no expense in assuring that the Titanic would not only be the safest ship on the waters, but also the largest ship equipped with only 20 lifeboats. The deck space for the first class passengers would not be taken up by bulky lifeboats.
Down below however hundreds of second class and third class passengers survived the first few days of the voyage in cramped compartments. Most of these individuals were immigrant families who had scraped together every bit of money they had to travel to America aboard the safest ship ever built in search of a better life. This is what led to the Titanic being named The ship of dreams.
On the morning of April 15, 1912, the sinking of the Titanic the previous night shocked the world. The ship was considered to have been well constructed it was believed she could sustain any amount of damage and still remain afloat. In 1912 the sinking of the Titanic began late on the night April 14th the ship approached a big iceberg and even though efforts were made to steer clear of the large frozen ice the large ship hit the iceberg. The Titanic disaster may have been avoided if the officers on ship had paid attention to the frozen water they were approaching. April 14,1912, The sinking of the Titanic
Tragically only 705 people survived the sinking of the Titanic. The Titanic was sinking and sinking fast. An SOS was sent out to neighboring ships. The Carpathia picked up the ships distress call and radioed back to let the ships crew know they were on their way. It would be to late by the time the Carpathia arrived. When they arrived all that was left of the Titanic was the scared survivors. There were 2228 people on board of the Titanic, 337 in first class, 285 second class, 721 in third class and 885 crew members.
Some Interesting Facts about the Titanic The ship was loaded with only enough lifeboats to hold half of the Titanic passengers. Some of the limited lifeboats were lowered to the water only half-full. Among the property reported as lost on the Titanic was over 3,000 bags of mail and a car. Each first class passenger paid $4,350.00 for a parlor suite ticket. The ship contained a heated swimming pool, a first for any sailing vessel. The ship was still so brand new when passengers boarded it on April 10, 1912, the paint was still wet in some spots. It cost $7,500,000 to build the Titanic. It took three years to fully construct the Titanic. The Titanics total capacity was 3,547 passengers and crew. The Titanics weight fully loaded was 46,328 tons.
