The Titanic Sank on this date in 1912

Actually the date was april 14 and 15, 1912 as the Ship struck the iceberg at 11:40 pm on the night of April 14 and sank in the early morning hours of April 15.

You have probably seen the movie (which takes a lot of liberties with the story including many fictionalized events) or you may have just head about the disaster.

Recently a book, the one pictured here, was written detailing more information about what actually happened.

A friend of DIT wrote a short book review which he handed out to his Sunday School class this past Sunday.

We thought you would also want to read the brief book review as it is very interesting and informative.

Also, as you no doubt know, as the ship was in in its final hours and minutes, the small orchestra played the Hymn Nearer My God to Thee.

As you read this book review, you might want to also listen to the movie version of the playing of the Hymn.
