96 Years Ago, Today...

Tuesday, April 15, 2008

A most magnificent ship sunk, and 1,517 of her passengers went with her to a watery grave. Even to this day, 96 years later, the Titanic remains one of the most fascinating maritime disasters to me, largely due to the monumental loss of life that could have been prevented.

As of this writing, there is one lone survivor of the sinking, Elizabeth Gladys “Millvina” Dean, age 96. Millvina was born February 2, 1912, and was the youngest passenger on board. Her mother and brother survived with her, but her father did not, and his body was never recoved.
