Even though one of the most traumatic events in maritime history happened over 100 years ago the story of the Titanic is extremely well known in society I chose to write about the Titanic because it is my favorite piece of history Everyone has heard of the unsinkable ship that struck an iceberg on her maiden voyage and ultimately sank But do you know what happened with many of the passengers on board the ship Weve all heard stories or read books or seen the movie with Leonardo DiCaprio but this account by Colonel Archibald Gracie a passenger on the ship gives us a look into the details in ways that you dont get in other interpretationsColonel Gracie being a man was not one of the small number of people put into the lifeboats He was one of the first few passengers to know that the ship had struck the iceberg and he put a lot of time into helping the crew load and deploy the lifeboats He survived by jumping into the water and clinging to the top of an overturned unsuccessfully deployed lifeboat until they were ultimately rescued by the Carapathia The book shows a picture of this lifeboat overturned in the ocean and it made me realize how hard it must have been for him to cling on as long as he did Gracie 324 I actually really liked seeing these images in the beginning of the book It gave me great insight and understanding of the actualityThe beginning of the book is the survivor story Gracie recounts what he went through from the time he boarded the boat through the disaster itself The descriptions were very vivid and you got insider details that you wouldnt get anywhere else He mentions people he interacted with He discusses members of Titanics crew from his gym instructor to the porter who was helping him pack Some of these people have not been commemorated in
