Magellan set a village on fire, and it was the village that Lapu Lapu the chief lived in. After Magellan realized what he did he knew he was in trouble and then they began fighting. With only around ten men defending Ferdinand, the rest of the crew stayed on the ship while they were at battle. This Final document shows how several of Magellan's crew members did not really care for him, as most of the crew stayed on the ship while he was in trouble.

Louie on the verge of death alongside with Phil on the life raft, “Louie prayed. He had prayed only once before in his life in childhood, when his mother was sick and he had been filled with a rushing fear that he would lose her.

The world 's largest cruise ship, at the time, took a deep plunge into the North Atlantic ocean on the night of April 15th, 1912. The horrifying event killed more than 1,500 innocent people on its maiden voyage, and only about 700 survived the wreck. The ship was going from Southampton, U.K. to New York City.

Gathering the courage to tell his father that he was going to go fishing with his friend was hard for the young man to do because he knows it would change their regular routine of fishing together and possibly hurt his father. While contemplating on how he should tell his father, the young man thought, “It was a very serious thing” (16). In contrast to all the long sentences, the fact that this sentence is short emphasizes the importance of how the young man’s new idea of going with his friend instead of his father changes his relationship with his father. However, the young man and father’s relationship won’t completely change because they will always have a strong foundation, which they created when the young man was still a kid and they spent a lot of time together. The young man and the father spent so much time together while the man was a kid to the point that “his father had always preferred his company to that of men and he had always preferred his father’s company to that of the other guys” (20-22).

She left the harbor on her maiden voyage to New York on April 10,1912.

The newspaper praised her as it said "the Stage as been deprived of one of its chief ornaments;” David Poe, Edgar's father and actor, passed on around December 10, 1811.

With those 72 people, most of which were well-known, there were a lot of good kids that were now orphaned, and other good families decided to take them in. Although Edgar wasn't a part of the fire, he got to live with a good family as well, the Allan's
On January 2, 1987, Stephen Crane’s boat Commodore sank twelve miles off the coast of Daytona Beach, Florida. After much chaos and confusion in abandoning ship, much of the people aboard perished in scattered life boats that capsized, but Crane was lucky enough to be on the solely surviving dinghy. Thirty long hours of paddling through stormy seas later, the boat barely arrived ashore. After this traumatic experience, Crane decided to transform this incident into a short story—one that explores both the literal and the metaphorical meaning of the sinking ship. He observed that the lack of choices many working-class citizens of his time had put them in a sinking ship, in which larger environmental forces destined to harm and suppress the individual

Stroud, UK: The History Press, p.118 few minutes longer, rising to a nearly vertical angle with hundreds of people still clinging to it, before sinking. For many years it was generally believed the ship sank in one piece; however, when the wreck was located many years later, it was discovered that the ship had fully broken in two. All remaining passengers and crew were dipped into lethally cold water of the ocean with a temperature of 28 °F (−2 °C).44 Almost all of those in the water died of cardiac arrest or other causes within 15–30 minutes. There is a supposition that most of the passengers could be saved, if the boats were fully loaded.
