The 1912 sinking of the Titanic is a significant part of history

because of the fact that it was supposed to be the unsinkable ship

yet it did and claimed the lives of 1517 people. The mistakes made

by it's builders to not add the correct amount of lifeboats and of

the officers to not fill the available ones to capacity were major

life lessons learned for future ocean liners.
