rare-titanic-7The world’s most famous ship, the RMS Titanic struck an iceberg and sank on the night of April 14th, 1912. The ship contained 20 lifeboats, which would have been enough for at least half of the 2228 people on board, but not even that many were saved. A total of 705 survivors were taken aboard the RMS Carpathia a short time after the Titanic went down. However, if not for the actions of a man named Robert Hopkins, the body count would have been more than the 1500 people that lost their lives that tragic night. This brave man was finally rewarded for his heroic effort that fateful night, and while it came over 100 years later, Hopkins brave deeds will continue to live on forever. [click to continue…]

kmThe night that the RMS Titanic struck and iceberg, and began to sink, not a whole lot of people knew what was going on. The senior officers on the bridge knew the Titanic was sinking, and some of them had been right there on the bridge when the rivets and metal plates scraped against the iceberg. As the ship began to take on water, and began to sink, the crew was alerted that there was a problem. The lifeboats had to be prepared, and soon, passengers were going to be filling up the 20 lifeboats the big ship had on the deck.

titanic-pf-exteriorThe RMS Titanic sank into the frigid waters of the North Atlantic over 104 years ago. While everyone focuses on the victims of the disaster, and rightly so with over 1500 of them, but there was a lot of things that happened that night that deserve as much as attention. One important aspect of the sinking was how the passengers and crew behaved, and there were some that went above and beyond the call of duty. Who were these brave men? The eight men on board the RMS Titanic serving as musicians.  That tragic night, those eight brave men played their instruments with their hearts and souls, trying to keep the passengers calm, and now, over 104 years later, the Titanic Museum at Pigeon Forge is going to honor them, and also display the violin Wallace Hartley played that tragic night.  [click to continue…]

Titanicdrawing6On the morning of April 15, 1912, the RMS Titanic sank to the bottom of the North Atlantic ocean. The ship was on her way from Southampton, England to New York City, and she carried a total of 2,228 people consisting of both passengers and crew.  While on the long journey, the passengers had the time of their lives with their fancy accommodations, and the finest food they had ever eaten. However, up on the bridge, the officers were sent warnings from other ships, which they subsequently ignored, and these warnings talked about icebergs, and a large field of ice, that was directly in the ship’s path. The big ship was going too fast through the waters, and at 11:40 pm, an iceberg loomed in the distance. Though the bridge tried to avoid the big chunk of ice, the ship scraped along its side, and in two hours and forty minutes, the biggest ship in the world was at the bottom of the ocean. Here are the last six facts about the Titanic you may not know about. [click to continue…]
