amazingtitanicpics1Ever since the great ship the RMS Titanic sank back on April 15th, 1912, people have wanted to understand exactly what happened that tragic night. The survivors had a story to tell, and even the United States Senate investigated, and in the end, the ship struck an iceberg, sank, and over 1500 people died in the frigid waters of the North Atlantic. However, ever since the ship went down, people have been trying to find out the truth about the Titanic.  While it is true the ship did strike an iceberg, there was more to it than that and a new documentary has come out to prove more just the iceberg sent the Titanic to the bottom of the ocean. The documentary called, Titanic: The New Evidence, explores a little known fact about the great ship as she sat sale, namely that she had a coal fire burning inside of her for two weeks before she left Southampton, England and headed for New York.

titanicnewevidence1Back in 1912, when the RMS Titanic sunk on the 15th of April, everyone wanted to know what had happened to the world’s biggest, and supposedly unsinkable, ship. The only surviving senior officer was Second Officer Charles Herbert Lightoller, and he reported that the ship had struck an iceberg. Not only did Lightoller confirm it was an iceberg, but it was also the passengers and crew had testified before the Senate that the disaster was caused by ice. However, this year, 2017, is the 105th anniversary of the Titanic sinking, and there are a lot of new documentaries about the disaster are coming out. One documentary, which is called Titanic: The New Evidence, is about a newly discovered cause of the sinking, and while everyone has always thought it was ice, this investigation of the sinking is now claiming a fire may have had more to do with it than previously thought. Was it really a fire that caused one of the greatest maritime disasters in history? [click to continue…]

ismayWhenever there is a disaster, everyone is always on the lookout for someone to blame. People have lost their lives, and they weren’t supposed to, so someone has to take the fall when tragedy strikes. Whether the person that gets the blame or not truly deserves it does not matter, the public is going to demand someone pay for the loss of lives. Back in 1912, when the RMS Titanic sank to the bottom of the North Atlantic, the public was so outraged that they demanded to know who was to blame for the death of over 1500 people. While the Chairman of the White Star Line, J. Bruce Ismay, who had survived the disaster, was the one everyone pointed the finger at, the fact is he was officially exonerated for what had happened. However,  the life of Bruce Ismay would never be the same, and he was rarely seen in public again. [click to continue…]
