Who Was To Blame For The Titanic Disaster? The Titanic was famous because it is more than three football pitches long and weighing about 46,000 tons. The titanic was taller than a 17-story building. It was known to be unsinkable. Inside the Titanic there was a gymnasium, a Parisian café and a tennis court.
The Titanic's maiden voyage was one that killed thousands, one that it didn't kill was Jack Thayer. Jack and all of the other passengers were caught by surprise when the Titanic hit an iceberg and they were told that the unsinkable Titanic was going down. Jack jumped off the boat and found a overturned lifeboat. He was eventually reunited with his mother, but his father was one of the many that died with the Titanic. Jack was lucky to have survived, for only about 705 did.
The captain also knew the ship was sinkable, contrary to what many had believed before the Titanic 's first voyage. While the passengers were under the impression nothing on planet Earth could sink the ginormous ocean liner, Captain Smith was fully aware that there was a slim possibility the Titanic was capable of sinking. In order for the Titanic to sink, more than four of its water tight compartments under the deck had to fill up with water. Since the compartments were watertight, Captain Smith figured only a catastrophic blow to the ship would cause the compartments to
Since Titanic didn 't have the correct safety features, it affected ship companies, and made it so the sea needed to be watched more. The White Star Line, and other ship companies were affected. It would cost a lot of money to add more safety features. All shipbuilding companies had to establish new safety regulations during the construction of a boat costing them months of work. Ships at sea at the time before the news reached out had to make more plans just encase.
Coleman Hardee February 16, 2018 US History Research Paper 1st Period The Titanic The RMS Titanic was a luxury steamship sailing from Southampton to France and Ireland then on to New York. The ship could occupy 2,435 passengers and about 900 crew members, which is a total of 3,300 people on board.
According to “A History In Numbers” by Dave Fowler, only 706 people aboard the Titanic survived the terrible accident, while the other 1,529 were taken down with the ship. Many people believed the iceberg was to blame for the sinking of the ship; however, the problems surrounding the ship began long before the ship set sail. “R.M.S Titanic” by Hanson W. Baldwin revealed that the crew was so confident in the ship’s inability to sink that they did not even pack enough lifeboats in case of an emergency. Furthermore, the captain and crew neglected to practice many safety drills that could have possibly saved many lives. The Titanic was doomed once the captain and crew set foot on the ship because of the arrogant aura they carried which resulted in the confusion and lack of resources that were obtainable during the sinking to many of the passengers including Master Harold Victor Goodwin and his family.
The Titanic, most definitely man’s greatest accomplishment, is made in Belfast, Ireland, where it is then set off into the open ocean, and set for Southampton, England. From there, on April 11, 1912, 2:00 p.m., the Titanic sets sail for New York. All seems well, and it looks for the first time, that man has built the “unsinkable ship.” However, the hopes, lives, ship and all are cut down by an iceberg and now rest at the bottom of the Atlantic. This horrendous fact was shown in both the book and the movie, “A Night to Remember,” along with many other facts and stories.
The Titanic’s maiden voyage was a disaster because the people didn’t prepare for things like this. Most ships go over a safety procedures, but the Titanic didn’t do such a thing. They only rescued wealthy people, which I felt was wrong. Some passengers jumped off the ship in desperation. Whoever drove the ship couldn’t have been paying attention.
Conclusion Even though Margaret Ann’s stay at the Titanic was tragic and the trauma and guilt that it gave her stayed in her memory her whole life, she at least still managed to get what she wanted, to be with her brother once again. The diary of Margaret Ann Brady has helped a lot of people understand the reality of what really happened to the passengers during the sinking of the
On April 15 the unsinkable ship went down into the North Atlantic Ocean. I Survived the Sinking of the Titanic by Lauren Tarshis is about the tragedy of the Titanic. I Survived the Sinking of the Titanic is about a 10 year old boy named George. Living in New York, George and his sister, Phoebe, went to England with their Aunt Daisy. They sail home on the ship of the Titanic.
I think the Edmund Fitzgerald sank because of the Three Sisters. “Anderson this is the Fitzgerald. I have a fence railed, two vents lost or damaged, and a list..” (A list means it his leaning or tipped a little). At 6:55pm Captain Cooper “felt a “bump”, they felt the ship
The Edmund Fitzgerald is a big mystery like the Titanic and just like the Titanic it has lots of theories on how it sank but to pacific there was 4 theories on how it sank on November 10, 1975 on lake Superior.People still don’t know what happened to the Edmund Fitzgerald till this day or what happened to her crew 29 men because no one lived to tell the tale of the Edmund Fitzgerald. There are many theories on how it sank to be exact there was 4 theories anyway. I choose the 4th theory. I believe in this theory because in the text titled the “Theory : 4Three Sisters” it talks about how the Edmund Fitzgerald could have sank by the Three Sisters the Three Sisters is a Lake Superior phenomenon that has two huge waves and later a monster wave as the
One fatal fail the Titanic carried was that the Titanic only carried 16 boats and there were altogether 3,000 people. So even if the lifeboats were loaded to their full capacity, only one-third would be saved. The reason it sank was because of 15 watertight bulkheads that contained a flaw that had a critical factor in the Titanic. Even if they were watertight, water could still get in some other way or compartment.
The article “ Into the Dark Water “, by Lauren Tarshis has many quotes from 17 year-old Jack Thayer, a passenger and survivor of the Titanic. Tarshis used these quotes to intensify the article and make it more interesting for the reader. The story feels more real with these quotes. She also used quotes to give the reader the emotions that Jack had and make the reader feel as if they were there.
