Titanic Remembrance Day


In the cold early morning of April 15, 1912, the RMS Titanic, opens a new window sank beneath the icy waters of the Atlantic Ocean. On her maiden voyage from England to New York City, the sinking of theTitanic shocked the world when the "unsinkable" luxury liner lost over 1,500 passengers. The cause, opens a new window? An iceberg. Not enough lifeboats. And a flawed "watertight" compartment design that only went a few feet above the waterline, which meant that as soon as the ship listed, water could pour over the tops of the bulkheads. Or perhaps a coal fire. Any way you look at it, the Titanic has been a source of public fascination for over 100 years.
