The Snyders who both survived the sinking of the Titanic. Lucky people!

Labeled as: "The "Real" Rose Calvert from Titanic. Her real name was Beatrice Wood." ➡ This is a 1917 picture of Beatrice Wood, but Rose DeWitt Bukater, portrayed in the movie is almost an entirely fictional character. James Cameron modeled the character of Rose (the "old" Rose) after American artist Beatrice Wood, who had no connection to Titanic history.

"I could see the lights of the ship starting to go under water, then soundlessly, perhaps a mile away, it just went down. It was gone. Oh yes, the sky was very black and the stars were very bright. They told me the people in the water were singing, but I knew they were screaming." Madeleine Mellinger in a Toronto Star interview, April 15, 1974, Titanic survivor

When the Titanic hit,Molly Brown took $500 cash, as many clothes as she could wear and an Egyptian talisman she had recently purchased for good luck.She boarded lifeboat number 6. She took turns rowing the lifeboat with the other passengers and argued to return to the site and pick up more passengers.When she returned to the US, a reporter asked why she didn’t go down with the Titanic and she responded, “because I’m a Brown, we’re unsinkable.”

Titanic Survivors, 1912

Ben Guggenheim, who died in the Titanic disaster.

Would be beautiful with a black off-the-shoulder or strapless dress.

Maggie Brown - Most people will remember her from the Titanic movie, but according to our tour guide, she was quite as abrasive as Kathy Bates portrayed her. And she wasn't some backwater ignorant redneck. At the time of the Titanic sinking she spoke 6 languages and acted as a translator and advocate for the immigrant widows who survived the wreck.

"Joseph Laroche and Juliette Lafargue were an intershade couple aboard the Titanic. As the ship sank, Joseph stuffed his coat with money & jewelry, took his pregnant wife and children to the deck and managed to get them into a lifeboat. He gave the coat to his wife, and said: “Here, take this, you are going to need it. I’ll get another boat. God be with you. I’ll see you in New York.” Joseph died in the sinking. He was the only victim of African Descent on the Titanic."

Titanic Second Officer Charles Lightoller said he knew the real reason why Titanic hit the iceberg and sank. He protected White Star and kept the info to himself except for telling his beloved wife. He followed the "Women and Children" rule and dove into the ocean as it sank. He lead a group of others in staying afloat on an overturned lifeboat. He was the last survivor to board the Carpathia. His is a story worth reading. His version of what happened to Titanic is incredible.

Prior to the 1850′s in New England, insane people, like this woman from Danvers Massachusetts were auctioned off to the highest bidder to do with as they pleased.

"What a life! Anna Mae Dickinson was eight when she lost her father and narrowly escaped death herself on the Titanic. She was 11 when she lost her Aunt Olivia in the torpedoing of the Lusitania. She was 31 when she lost her first cousin Alfred in the Hindenberg explosion. She was 37 when she lost her nephew Thomas in the bombing of Pearl Harbor.And she was 97 when her tiny apartment was shaken and battered by the collapse of the twin towers on September 11, 2001."

Among the Titanic survivors is the most famous Margaret Tobin Brow, known as the "Unsinkable Molly Brown" - the only woman to row a lifeboat to safety. Mrs. Brown was on her way home to America when disaster struck. She did her best to help others into the lifeboats before boarding herself. Once in the water, Mrs. Brown fiercely argued with the quartermaster Robert Hitchens to rescue people in the water. When he refused, she threatened to throw him overboard (via titanicuniverse)

This is Rosa Abbott, a Third Class passenger on Titanic. Rosa was the only woman to be pulled alive from the icy waters on that fateful night.

Illustrated by John McCrady for the WPA War Services in Louisiana between 1941 and 1943, this poster warns about the dangers of carless talk about ship departures: "This happens when you talk to others about ship sailings. Let's make New Orleans a safe port of departure."
