The titanic was a horrible event that happened on April 15, 1915, killing 1,500 innocent people. This was partly a freak accident and at the same time a disaster that could have been completely avoided. The Titanic struck an iceberg at 11:40pm on April 14, 1915 and sunk at 2:20am on April 15, 1915. The Titanic was one of the biggest and fastest ships at the time being, and was heading from Southampton to New York City. She also had a captain named Edward John Smite, he was a very good captain and sailed so the biggest and best ship but this would be his final voage. The titanic sank because of many reason like the mirage or the miscommunication or even because they accidentlly locked up the binoculars.
