An article titled “Sir Francis Drake 's Famous Voyage Round The World, 1580” was written by Francis Pretty, who was one of Drake 's Gentlemen at arms. This article is a description of Sir Francis Drake’s voyage, detailing the specific events that transpired throughout the voyage. Throughout this paper I will be comparing and contrasting these two voyages. Sir Francis Drake and Ferdinand de Magellan both had a fleet of five ships that accompanied them on their voyage. In both voyages only one of the ships survived with most of the crew being either lost of dead.
The trip there was around 14 hours, stopping at a hotel on the way down. Finally The long ride was over. We saw the sign “Welcome to Tennessee” it stated, We have finally arrived. We left early, When we arrived at our log cabin in the Mountains of Gatlinburg, We unpacked, got settled, ect. It was around noonish, we went into the city.
The Lost City of Atlantis is often believed and often doubted. Around the time of 1,500 B.C. Poseidon led a large civilization that “sank into the Atlantic” after a major earthquake or also said to be a volcanic eruption. The City was sank by waves in one entire day and one entire night. Theme parks have been made to resemble the legend of the lost city.
It starts on March 4, 1865 and goes day by day until July 7, 1865. It details the events of every day as they go by. The authors also put it in chronological order by counting down the days until Lincoln’s death. The prologue begins with Lincoln having 6weeks to live and each chapter about President Lincoln continues to count down Lincoln’s days until April 14. Once the reader begins the book, they follow the life of President Lincoln, the final days of the war, and the life of John Wilkes Booth’s as they unfold just weeks before the assassination takes place.
Yesterday, February 3rd, 1917,The American cargo ship, Housatonic , a German U-boat sank. In response, President Wilson broke off diplomatic relations with Germany the same day. The attack on Housatonic is the first time in history that a submerged submarine had successfully sunk another ship. Aboard the Union vessel, two officers and three men were killed while the crew took to the boats or climbed into the rigging to await rescue. The reason as to what led to the sinking is unknown at this time.
I have reviewed and read the article carefully. 4. Jim Sullivan’s article “The Mother of All Parbuckles” argues that modern technology parbuckling applies to a centuries-old technique that raised the 2012 luxury liner Costa Concordia in mid-2014, from the ocean bay. In January 2012, the Costa Concordia ran aground in a marine reserve off Italy’s Giglio Island; killing 32 people at the process. Settling on its starboard side on two undersea rock ledges.
In 2004 in Indonesia a 9.0 earthquake hit and created a tsunami that killed about 250,00 people and the author Richard Lewis recreaded the story in the killing sea because he is interested in the mysterious ocean. First on page 48 the narrator said “for as far as Ruslan could see, meulaboh had become a lake, clogged with floating debris”. this is true because meulaboh was one of the first places that the tsunami hit so all the ocean water was there and went through many cities and destroyed pretty much everything there.throughout the book Ruslan finds dead bodies and so did many of the rebels, it said that on page 49 the narrator said”across the way, ruslan can see dozens of bodies crumpled on second floor stairs of the shopping mall.” because of the tsunami, about 250,000 people had died so there would be many dead bodies everywhere and inside of every building, but especially in the shopping mall because people like to go to the mall so there would be a lot of people there. Then on page 18 the narrator said”from up top came peter exited cry.”hey, the reefs are drying up! there 's fish flopping fish around!”” in meulaboh,before the tsunami hit the reef dried up and groups of people were just standing there looking at the reef and there actually was fish flopping around, but then the tsunami hit and killed all of the tourists that were just standing there.richard Lewis accurately represented the tragedy of the tsunami in Indonesia and added a few characters that made
On April 14, 1912 the RMS Titanic crashed into an iceberg and sank only a few hours later, down to the bottom of the Atlantic. The Titanic was the largest steam vessel ever built and was truly a civilization in its own; due to its economic diversity and number of passengers, the Titanic was basically a floating city. However, after the crashing of the enormous steam vessel, its story became even more intriguing to the public. The tragic event was written about in songs, poetry, and novels. To many, the unsinkable ship was a symbol of identity and hope before it became a tragedy, influencing music and literature.The sinking of the Titanic influenced African American culture and literary works throughout the 20th Century.
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. Despite the many similarities between the two types of media, there were also many differences.
The USS Cyclops was an American huge carrier ship that was commanded during World War II. Its first voyage during this time was to St. Nazaire, France in June 1917, returning to the United States the subsequent month. After that, Commander G.W. Worly accredited this ship to the Naval Overseas Transportation Service to support refueling of British ships in Brazil on January 9, 1917, and on February 16th the following year, it left Brazil. March 4th was the last time the USS Cyclops to be heard.
