Among the property reported as lost on the Titanic . were over 3000 bags of mail and an automobile. On April 11th, 1912 The Titanic leaves Queenstown for New York and sails through calm, clean water for 3 days. On April 14th 1912 the lookouts see an iceberg dead ahead. The iceberg strikes the Titanic on the starboard side of her bow at 11.40 pm. The ship was loaded with only enough lifeboats to hold half of the Titanic passengers. Some of the 20 lifeboats were lowered to the waters only half-full. 3 hours after hitting the iceberg the last section of the Titanic sank forever into the icy waters of the Atlantic The Titanic's total capacity was 3547 passengers + crew. The largest percentage of survivors came from first class passengers Most of the women and children lost in the sinking came from second and third class Most of the crew also died included Captain Smith who planned to retire after the Titanic voyage The remains of the Titanic were found and many mysteries unveiled... The most notable discovery was that the ship had split apart Possibly there was an implosion Surrounding the wreck a large debris field was found with pieces of the ship
