The boat rocked and bounced against the thick, chunky ice. George Washington and his 2,400 troops were stealthily traveling to Trenton to pull a surprise attack on the Hessian soldiers there. George Washington 's morale-boosting voice rang out against the stillness of the night, “I believe and declare my military strategy will win over the Hessians!” The hundreds of boats all let out cheers and shouts echoing across the frozen river.

Over the next two days, Ike maintained a steady course towards Galveston and Houston, TX. Though the hurricane had only increased to a strong Category 2, it exhibited an unusually large wind field, which caused a projected storm surge of that which would usually accompany a Category 4 hurricane”( Hurricanes Science and society).

Passengers scrambled back to rooms for life jackets. Then, a second explosion shook the ship, believed to be a steam pressure drop. With the ship moving at 18 knots the water flooding in caused the bow to sink and the stern to lift, and a list towards the starboard, as a result of the empty coal bunker filling up. The men in the forward baggage holds, where the torpedo hit, were all killed or trapped, and they knew how to launch a life boat. The deck was in chaos, the starboard boats were too far for a person to get in them off the deck and the port ones were not over the water.

He was busy glaring at the depth finder, daring a log to scratch the bottom of the boat. “But dad,” Janet replied, “A bee stung me, and..” “So pull out the stinger and be done with it!” The skin on the back of her hand was now pulled taut, and Janet could feel her blood pulsing through the sore. The pain was excruciating, but Janet did not want to make her dad angry again.
