The second of three biggest ships— RMS Titanic was heading Queenstown (Cobh) in Ireland. On April 10, 1912. passengers boarded Titanic.

the plane was 3.5 miles Southwest of the Pentagon, making a 330 degree right turn, just four miles from the Pentagon. There were two reported calls from Flight 77, one from flight attendant Renee May that was to her mother and a call from passenger Barbara Olsen to her husband, telling him how hijackers had used box cutters and knives to take over the plane. At 9:38 a.m. Flight 77 crashed into the Pentagon, killing all 64 passengers that were on the plane and taking lives of others. For the third time that day, innocent lives were taken.
The RMS Titanic is one of the most famous ocean liners that has sailed the Atlantic. She was the largest ship of it’s time and was ironically nicknamed the “unsinkable” ship. No one would know the irony of that statement until her first and last voyage from Southampton, England to New York City. On the morning of April 15th, 1912 the Titanic collided with an iceberg. After 2 hours and 40 minutes of her hull filling with water, her stern rose up into the air and broke in two before sinking in the great Atlantic.
Initally, al-Qaeda considered targeting nuclear power plants on 9/11, but decided to go against it because they feared it would get too out of control. Four passenger airlines, all of which departed from airports in the northeastern United States bound for California, were hijacked by 19 al-Qaeda members. One plane hit the Pentagon just outside of Washington D.C., the second plane crashed in a field in Pennslyvania, and the last two planes crashed into the Twin Towers. Within one hour and 42 minutes both 110 story towers were completely on the ground, with debris filling the air and fires starting to spread. Numerous other buildings at the World Trade Center site in lower Manhattan were destroyed or badly damaged.
Experiencing 3 Deaths “Norman Maclean writes that dying in a forest fire is actually like experiencing three deaths” (Junger 563). Sebastian Junger an author/journalist mostly known for “The perfect storm” conveyed his point of view in BLOWUP: WHAT WENT WRONG AT STORM KING MOUNTAIN. In this nonfiction journal entry, a wildfire broke loose on Storm King Mountain in Colorado on July 6th, 1994. Where 14 firemen tragically gave their lives fighting in a combination of rare weather and nature conditions. Junger presented Chronological order, a text structure to provide evidence of lives protected by evacuating at the exact time they did.
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.
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
Adversity is found in the book “Shipwreck at the Bottom of the World.” Courageously, the characters in this book, that I read in my language arts class, encountered a situation in which their expedition ship got stuck in the significant amount of ice surrounding the Antarctic. After several months of waiting for the ice to melt, their ship brutally collapsed into the Antarctic Ocean from the moving mass of frozen water compressing it. Not only were the temperatures considerably below freezing, but constantly the ocean kept throwing frigid waves at the crew. Also, the ice floes that the crew camped out on had many dangers associated with them. Once a leopard seal came onto the
This belief was also held by the captain and most of the crew which led to the destruction of the Titanic. Even after being warned countless times of icebergs by the Californian, Baldwin revealed that officers disregarded their warnings by ordering them to “shut up, shut up; keep out, I am talking to Cape Race; you are jamming my signals.” In addition, Fowler informed the public that only 53.4% of the passengers on the ship could have been saved if the lifeboats were completely filled up. The iceberg was a huge factor in the sinking of the Titanic; however, because the captain and crew did not pack enough resources for emergencies and disregarded many safety procedures and warnings, the iceberg was not the only cause of the horrible
