One of the greatest mysteries of ALL times was the sinking of the RMS Titanic brought to life by the movie Titanic directed by James Cameron. The Sinking of the Titanic: Some Basic Facts will give you a small but simple personal explanation of the factors leading to the most tragic disaster at sea in the last 100 years. My recent travels to New England and Nova Scotia stirred emotions and provided some answers to what may have really happened to the Titanic. Personal pictures taken at the Halifax Maritime Museum and Fairview Cemetery as well as descriptions of what the photos represent are given here.
I hope that you find the information interesting and that it may lead you and your students to investigate this topic in more detail.
Thank you for your interest.
