He was blamed after they found out that many men died because there were not enough lifeboats. As he was the owner of the ship, he was one of the first ones to get a seat with the women on the lifeboat because he knew that there werent enough. Many men were dragged off the lifeboats as they tried to get on with their wives but he had managed to get on it without getting dragged back. Many reports have indicated Bruce Ismay bribing Thomas Andrews ,the ships designer, to decrease the watertight compartment so that there would be more first class seats.The main reason why people were agitated with him was because he survived the tragedy. Survivors of the Titanic were furious with him because there were not enough lifeboats for all the passengers on board.
It was not all size and grandeur, however, as it was also known to some as a slave ship. But these differing views never expected the tragic demise and possibly the greatest maritime disaster of all time. We can link many causes to this event, but we cannot place any one person responsible. At the time, the tragedy rested on the shoulders of the deceased Captain Smith, who had the most authority on the Titanic. Had he survived, he would have been court marshaled as more than 1400 of the ships’ passengers drowned or were killed.
On the 5th day a cold front had come in and temperatures dropped making it freezing, though the waves were calm something wasn’t right. Last minute, the lookout crew sees an iceberg alerts the captain and by the time the captain tells the steering person he turns and the boat is scraped flooding compartment by compartment eventually sinking the boat. There was so many things wrong with this event; several factors could have prevented the sinking of the boat and saved so many lives from that night. The titanic was built in March 31, 1909(A night to remember.) The boat was made of steel.
Even though it has been over a decade since the legendary, world renown Titanic ship sunk near the waters on the East Coast of the United States of America, however many science researchers and historians still look into this mysterious and shocking case. After the Titanic hit an iceberg in the North Atlantic Ocean on Sunday April 14, 1912 at 11:40 p.m, the ship submerged under the icy waters in a matter of only 3 hours. Though these are the facts present, science writer Richard Corfield questions how a 46, 000-ton ship could “sink so quickly” in his recent article in the magazine, Physics World. Corfield then speculated that “it was a classic event cascade” in Discovery News taking note of all the factors that caused the Titanic to end up at the bottom of the Atlantic. These factors include the lack of proper attention towards iceberg warnings, the overestimation in the quality of the ship’s components, and possibly the climate and weather during the time which may have all led to the ultimate downfall of the ship.
On April the 10th 1912, the titanic set sail from Southampton. She was carrying 2340 people. After the Titanic left Southampton she hit an iceberg in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean causing the great ship to sink. More than 1300 people died that tragic night. In this essay I will explain how and why the Titanic’s maiden voyage was such a disaster using; speed and distance, reaction to the iceberg, lifeboats and rescue and finally overconfidence.
Fashion was a very popular thing in 1912 but it has become extremely different to what we wear presently. Tragedies are not something people like to remember, but those are the memories we remember the most. In the year 1912, the most tragic event that happened was when the Titanic sank and 1,517 people died. This tragic event devastated many people. On October 14th 1912, Theodore Roosevelt was shot in the chest by John Schrank.
In result of this, this cause loads of deaths. To conclude the actions from the officers were a very important factor in causing a high death toll in World War One. This was mainly down to their naivety, ineptness and how out of touch they really were. There loss of seeing things for how they really were, was another reason why there army lost so many of their men. In some cases it seemed the army were being sent in blind, as the officers refused to change their old fashioned
Titanic embarked on its maiden journey on April 10, 1912 from England. The captain of the ship was Edward John Smith who was the most experienced captain on that time. On night of April 14, 1912 even after many wireless operators received iceberg warning signals, the captain Edward Smith ignored all the warnings and he rushed the ship in full stream. Because of the high speed they couldn’t alter the route of Titanic to avoid sideswiping the iceberg even though they spotted the iceberg before quarter mile. And, the ship sideswiped a large iceberg which damaged about 300 feet of its hull surface which allowed the water enter into the six watertight compartments of the ship.
Mistake A: There was the captain of the ship who was in charge of the ships speed and what way it went, he was made the ship travel at 20 knots per hour, close to its top speed, if he had been ravelling slower maybe he would have been able to avoid the ice burg. Bruce Ismay, he was in charge of the company that owned the titanic, they both wanted publicity and to be the first one to reach America on such a big ship, so I think the captain was speeding the ship because of Bruce Ismay and the company. Mistake B: There was the Ship Builder, who helped put the ship together; he was working for the company. He was the one who riveted the ship together but the mistake he made was when he used poor iron to rivet the ship, it would have been more stronger but the company didn’t have enough money so he riveted the ship with cheap poor quality iron, so the ship might have lasted longer when the ice burg hit. Mistake C: There was Thomas Andrews who helped make the ship, he made the compartments for the bottom of the ship.
The movie, Titanic (1997) is based on a true story about an Olympic-class ship, which carried 2,300 men, women, and children, on its Maiden voyage from England to New York on April 15th, 1912. The main characters of this movie are Jack Dawson and Rose DeWitt Bukater, who are two passengers of different social classes who find love while on the Titanic. There were two parties on the Titanic. The poorer third-class passengers we under the deck and the first-class passengers were located on the deck. This movie clearly conveys the inequality between the first and third class passengers.
