The Titanic is a story heard all around the world. The unsinkable ship, that sank. At the time, the Titanic was a luxurious, top-of-the-line ship that many people believed to live up to the sayings. Sadly, they were very wrong.
Exactly 2,503 people died including passengers and crew members. There were 2,208 total people on the ship, that would mean over 50% of the total people died. The incident happened on April 14, 1912 in the night and lasted until the morning of April 15. The big controversy was started because of the number of lifeboats that were on the ship and the amount of people that boarded the lifeboats. Only 16 lifeboats were on the Titanic.
The captain of the Titanic, Edward John Smith, was a great and well-known captain who was often called the "Millionaires Captain." He was known as this because every wealthy person that went on a cruise specifically looked for this man, due to his amazing experience and skill. Captain John Smith died with the sinking of the Titanic, but his legacy hasn't.
The Titanic was one of three ships made during that time, Olympic, Britannic, and Titanic herself. The Titanic was only made famous from the tragedy, which is very sad.
The Titanic is one of the most well known tragedies in the history of world and it changed the future of how safety is looked at on cruise ships. Which means, the Titanic was a big help in the safety precautions we have today.
