A Terrible Tragedy! By Jordan H.
Last night, April 14, a terrible tragedy
happened on thehigh seas. The Titanic
hit an iceberg and began to sink. It
happened about 11:40 p.m. while most
people were unaware of the icebergs
around them. Captain Smith organized
the crew to get the passengers into the
lifeboats. This was very hard because
there weren’t enough boats. The lights
went out at 2:18 AM and the ship began to tear apart. Survivors report seeing the ship break in two,between the
3rd and 4th funnels. Some swimmers

were crushed. All the people who were still
trapped on the ship either jumped into the
water or went down with the ship. Finally,
the Carpathia came close enough to rescue
the people on the lifeboats. Senator Fletcher
was one of those rescued. “We partiallyrowed and she partially came some of the
way. We saw her at a distance. She stopped
and we surmised that she was then picking
up a boat. I think we were about the 4th or
5th to be picked up,” he reported. Survivor
Mary Davis Wilburn said, “ The dead came
up holding children in their arms. The poor

The Titanic weighed over 53, 000 tons.



Fourteen years ago a novel called the
“Futility” was released about a ship
called the “Titan”. This ship was
unsinkable and hit an iceberg on the way
to North America. Many people in the
novel died because the ship did not have
enough life-boats.



In 1912, the Titanic cost $7.5 million to
build.

people never had a chance.” In total
1517 people died and 706 people
were saved. Everybody thought that
the Titanic was unsinkable but were
they right?

The Floating Palace
The Titanic is one of the most famous historical ships in the world; it is about the
largest object ever to be moved.
Twomen, who were workers on building the
Titanic, were killed accidentally.
The Titanic had three anchors- one on each
side of the ship and one right in the center
front of the ship.
If the Titanic had not dropped its anchors it
would have floated away.
Once the ship was done they had bright red
rockets to tell the boats to stay away from the
launching area of the Titanic.
