As the steamboat sinks readers are given insight into the four surviving members’ initial thoughts and emotions about the circumstances they are in. The correspondent in the story is heavily modeled after Stephen Crane himself as Stephen Crane wrote this story based off his real life experience of being shipwrecked and lost to sea for over thirty hours. This is important to note as the story is narrated by the correspondent. Following the shipwreck, the narrator states “These waves were gray, except for the tops, which were white, and all the men knew the colors of the sea. The line between sky and water narrowed and widened, and fell and rose.
My great-grandfather, was a hero because he fought in world war 2, after many other hardships in his life. A big reason for that statement as a hero is the reason stated prior to this. He wasn’t forced to fight, he signed up for it. Even though he lived in Italy, the tension in Germany in the mid 1930’s was too much for everyone, including his family. The issue was that they wanted to go to America, but they couldn’t afford the expenses of taking a boat to America.
We waited hours for a boat to arrive. When it got to us we looked for the rest of my family, I saw a middle aged man with a long hair bushy hair. “Dad!” I yell tears running down my eyes. But when I saw his face it wasn’t my dad. After searching for my family we only found my older brother.
Even though Margaret Ann survived, she lived with guilt knowing that she survived the sinking of the Titanic. Moreover, the death of Robert did not help her situation at all, but she still chose to live for Robert. Years later, she got married and had three kids, naming one of them Robert to honour Robert’s death. Margaret Ann Brady died in her sleep in 1994 at the age of ninety-five. 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.
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.
One thing was certain, namely, approximately 60% of the Europeans that sailed on the Pleiad, the ship of the expedition, did not return alive to England. Most lost their lives on the river; several collapsing at Freetown, Sierra Leone, on the return journey. Most of the casualties succumbed to black water fever (severe malaria). Dr. William Balfour Baikie (1825-1864), who was the ship 's surgeon, and who took over as captain following the captain 's death from drink during the outward journey, would emerge as the most successful and enduring figure in that enterprise of exploration. His name, in the corrupt form Bekee, would become eponymous for all white men in the language of the Igbo peoples in the decades that followed!
Within one-hundred years, people went through four of the toughest wars known to mankind, with the Vietnam war along with them. All they were trying to do was protect their country, and all they got in return was America turning a blind eye towards
More than 2,000 people were rescued from the hardest hit areas and many victims were still left missing. The Philippine Coast Guard was dispatched to search for missing people after villages were reported to have been swept out to sea. Due to eagerness and desperation of finding their loved ones; victims, their
