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
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
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 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. It set sail on the 10th April 1912, and it sunk on the 14th April 1912 – four days after it set sail. It was famous because it was the largest man-made object in the world. The Titanic was carrying 2,223 people, 1,517 people died. The guests were split into three different classes; first, second and third class, and the higher classes had an advantage when it came to boarding lifeboats and being closer to the top of the deck where the lifeboats
In the essay, “The Ethics of Belief” by William K. Clifford, Clifford argues how one believes is not only responsible for self, but for others as well (Burger, 2008). He believes that one should not believe something without sufficient evidence or vigilant reasoning because you are morally obligated to others. Additionally, Clifford does not consider belief and action to be unconnected, because beliefs can result in actions that affect others. Clifford uses a shipowner sending an emigrant-ship out to sea as an example. Initially, the shipowner has reservations about his ship being old and needing an expensive overhaul to be deemed seaworthy as suggested by some experienced personnel. However, he convinces himself the ship will be fine because it had made this trip safely on numerous occasions. Instead of paying to have the ship overhauled and trusting the word of more experienced personnel, he loads families aboard and unfortunately, the ship goes down and all the passengers are lost.
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. As one can see, the novel written by Walter Lord and the screenplay directed by Roy Ward Baker has some very striking similarities and some very
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 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. The ship never made it to its final stop. The Titanic sank on April 15th 1912.

I still remember July 31, 2015 like it was yesterday. I was lying in bed at five in the morning, contemplating the day I had ahead of me on a warm summer morning. Hearing a knock on my bedroom door, my mom walked in and whispered that she was leaving for the hospital with my dad. All I could manage to do was hug her. My mom was scheduled to be induced to have my youngest brother, Andrew. Throughout her pregnancy, numerous concerns arose due to her age. Thankfully, Aunt Joy from Florida offered to help while Mom was in the hospital and after.
The Titanic was a ship going to New York, from Britain, but it crashed into icebergs and sank. The Titanic was thought to be ¨the unsinkable ship.¨ Thomas Andrews was the man who inspired the creation of the Titanic. Mr. Andrews dropped out of school when he was sixteen years old because he wanted to design and build ships. On April 10, 1912, the Titanic took off for New York, USA. The ship could carry sixty-four lifeboats, but only took twenty lifeboats because the Titanic was said to be “unsinkable”. Before the Titanic was hit, the captain, however Edward J. Smith had received six warnings of an iceberg but did nothing about it. Once the Titanic hit the iceberg, Thomas Andrews was only concerned of other’s lives, not his own. He tried getting all the children to safety. He was last found throwing chairs and other items into the Atlantic Ocean so people could stay above water. There were 1,500 lives lost on April 15, 1912, by the sinking of the Titanic. 3,300 people were on board. What if the Titanic had crossed the Atlantic and made it safely to America? Would the Titanic still be working today? This was a disastrous tragedy and a mystery in America. This was a huge loss for America because a lot of the smart wealthy people were on that ship. Also a lot of riches were on the

But on that night, rain constantly flooded the boat, with
Many people either drowned while in a lower part of the ship, or was pulled under with the
In the article Into the Dark Water by Lauren Tarshis, I think the author included the quotes of a real experience, because it makes the story realistic and a tragedy. It shows how people lost their family members. And to make it realistic, it shows things that many people think , and how they assume nothing will be wrong, until they realize the person who really knows about it is worried. The quotes also help you create a movie in your mind. Which also makes it more realistic.
