A message from the Olympic reports that it has received word from the Titanic. Image from Getty Images.

Titanic time line of when everything took place. Just a little bit off and my grandfather would have been a baby on the sinking Titanic.... luckily for me he was on another ship

Now hopefully I can find one from the Titanic = my favorite and greatest section of all time! Cross-section of the HMS Olympic from the August 14, 1909 issue of "The Illustrated London".

My 10 year old Granddughter is totally obsessed with the Titanic. She reads everything she can get her hands on!

In the 1898 novel Futility, 14 years before the sinking of the Titanic, Morgan Robertson penned a fictitious tale about a ship named Titan, which rams an iceberg and sinks with many victims. Some of the uncanny similarities between the book and the Titanic calamity include the month (April), the length of the ship (Titanic 882.5 feet; Titan 800 feet), and the number of passengers on board (Titanic, 2,200; Titan, 2,000).

Leadership gains/failures by all ships "relevant" to that fateful night:

When a ship it sinks it leaves a path of debris (objects from within the ship or objects breaking off). Depending how deep the vessel sinks this debris can be scattered over a large distance. On a shorter descent, the debris falls more or less vertically. However, as the Titanic sank 21/2 miles a huge debris field was expected.

Sad...a very different perspective looking at the boat this way. Interesting.
