I’ve always been intrigued by the great passenger ship, Titanic. The White Star Liner Titanic, the largest ship the world had ever known, sailed from Southampton, England, on her maiden voyage to New York City on Wednesday, April 10, 1912. She was built with double bottoms and her hull was divided into 16 watertight compartments. She was thought to be unsinkable. The liner carried more than 2,200 passengers, with 700 on the ships registry who were immigrants coming to America in pursuit of the land of milk and honey.
The Titanic sank 100 years ago on April 15, 1912.
