Titanic

Written By Call #2

Call #1:
Hi, everybody! Today, we’re gonna talk about the Titanic! The Titanic was a building built in France for Americans as a gift!

Call #2:
No, Call #1! That was the statue of Liberty! The Titanic was a ship built in Belfast, an area in England. The construction started on March 31st in 1909. The main person building was Thomas Andrews. He designed the ship.

Call #1:
Oh! I see. Ships were really fancy back then, right?

Call #2:
Yes, the Titanic was beyond fancy. People said it was the ship of dreams. It had at least five floors and three decks. There was first class, second class, and third class! First class members had tons and tons of money. Second class had a fair amount. But the third class only had to pay what would be sixty-four dollars in today's money. That meant they had smaller rooms, and not as good service. Even though it was still fancy for a third class room on a ship. It had two bunk beds, and a locked safe in it. It probably also had a small table and chairs.

Call #1:
How much did second and first class have to pay?

Call #2:
The first class tickets ranged enormously in price, from $150 (about $1,700 today) for a simple yet fancy room, up to $4,350 ($50,000 today) for one of the two Parlour suites. Second class tickets were $60 (around $700 today).

Call #1:
Whow! That's amazing! Didn’t the Titanic crash into a tiny submarine and everybody died?

Call #2:
No. It actually crashed into an iceberg in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. We didn’t have GPS or any phones back then, so-

Call #1:
WE DIDN’T HAVE ANY CELL PHONES? MY LIFE SUDDENLY MEANS NOTHING! MY LIFE IS RUINED!! AHHH! SAVE ME!-sorry, as you were saying…

Call #2:
Okay…, moving on. Because we couldn’t track to iceberg, and the ship was moving so fast, and it was enormous, it was so hard to turn the ship in time. To steer away from the iceberg. It scraped on the iceberg for about ten seconds straight.

Call #1:
Then, two hours later, the ship sank at 2’am on April 14th, in 1912.

Call #2:
That’s what some people think the date was, but if you really pay attention to the time. It’s 2’am. So, the Titanic really sank on April 15th. Not 14th!

Call #1:
That’s so sad. But at least everyone was saved from the lifeboats and life jackets.

Call #2:
Well, wouldn’t you think? But really, there were only enough lifeboats for half the passengers, and most of them left not full. It was really sad. And even though everyone had a life jacket, the water was below freezing. No one would’ve survived longer than about less than an hour in that water.

Call #1:
Whow! That is super sad. But, at least all the families stayed together!

Call #2:
Actually, they didn’t all stay together. They said “Women and children first”. So, they let all the first and second class women go first, and barely anybody from third class survived! Also, more than half the men on the boat died. It seperated tons of families.

Call #1:
(Pretends to cry, or really does) That’s so sad!

Call #2:
Yes. But, thankfully, now there are laws to prevent this happening again.

Call #1:
Like what?

Call #2:
Well, now there needs to be enough lifeboats for more than enough passengers

Call #1:
Oh, so like even if none of the lifeboats were full, everyone would be able to escape?

Call #2:
Exactly. Also, there was believed to be a ship closer than the Carpathia, the ship that saved the survivors. It was called the S.S. Californian. It could have arrived at the Titanic in a little over one hour and saved all of the passengers on the ship. The only problem was, it’s telegraph was off for the night, so by the time the Titanic sent out distress codes, the ship didn’t receive them. The Titanic wouldn’t have been so big in our history if that ship had saved the Titanic passengers.
