What was the significance of the sinking of the titanic in 1912?
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.
