On April 10, 1912, the Titanic set sail on its maiden voyage. The luxurious liner departed from Southampton, England with over 2,300 passengers aboard. The ship was expected to dock in New York City but as well all know, it never made it. It was one of the biggest and most lavished passenger ships of its era and was also fatefully touted as being "unsinkable." On the night of April 14th, the liner struck an iceberg, and sunk to the bottom of the Atlantic in mere hours. Due to a lack of lifeboats, over 1,500 people met a horrific icy end. Because of the disaster, the Titanic became most well-known ship in the world.
