She was supposed to be "unsinkable." But on April 14, 1912, the unthinkable happened: the world's largest and most luxurious oceans liner - the Titanic - struck an iceberg in the frigid waters in the dark of night. What happened next seemed unbelievable to people at the time.

What really happened in Mrs. O'Leary's barn that autumn night in Chicago? Though no one knows for sure, what is certain is someone, or something, started a load of hay on fire, and the city of Chicago would never be the same. The Great Chicago Fire of 1871 raged for more than 24 hours, obliterating the downtown and sparking a mass exodus to the prairies and lake. The flames grew so hot that they melted iron and marble, and the twisting winds tore the roofs off houses. The individual stories of courage and tragedy, recounted by survivors who fought for their lives, captivated a nation and elicited an outpouring of aid. The stricken city would rise again, but its tale of near extinction would remain one of America's most defining legends.

She was supposed to be "unsinkable." But on April 14, 1912, the unthinkable happened: the world's largest and most luxurious oceans liner - the Titanic - struck an iceberg in the frigid waters in the dark of night. What happened next seemed unbelievable to people at the time. In approximately two and a half hours, the celebrated ship flooded with water, cracked in half, and sank miles to the ocean floor below. Of the 2,200 passengers and crew onboard, only 705 survived. The rest suffered a terrifying and cold death in the Atlantic. Observers around the world were horrified and saddened by the tragedy, and many wanted answers. What caused this incredible disaster to happen, and why did so many people have to die? In "The Sinking of the Titanic", read about the steamship from stem to stern, from her building and construction, her crew and passengers, and her fate with an iceberg, to the effect this tragedy had, and continues to have, on the shipping industry and the world.
