THE SINKING OF THE TITANIC

INTRODUCTION

RMS Titanic was a British passenger liner that sank in the North Atlantic Ocean on 15 April 1912 after colliding with an iceberg during her maiden voyage from Southampton, England to New York City. She carried 2,224 passengers and crew. The sinking caused the deaths of more than 1,500 people, making it one of the deadliest peacetime maritime disasters in modern history.

The RMS Titanic was the largest ship afloat at the time it entered service. It was the second of three Olympic class ocean liners operated by the White Star Line, and was built by the Harland and Wolff shipyard in Belfast. Thomas Andrews, her naval architect, Andrews was among those lost during the sinking.
