R.M.S. Titanic In The News.
You’ve seen the 1912 photos of the Turkish bath. Ever wonder what it looks like today? National Geographic has released never before seen images of the wreck.
I make a point, with each of my posts, of sharing websites you may be interested in. However, I have never written a post specifically to recommend someone’s blog.
I fully recommend J.G. Burdette’s blog, “Map of Time, A Trip Into The Past”. I do not know J.G. Burdette, but I do know that he(or she) has a site of well written articles. Articles about important events and people in history, some of which have been forgotten by time. Just a sampling of topics include: SS Eastland, SS Empress of Ireland, SS General Slocum, RMS Titanic, RMS Lusitania, HMHS Britannic, General Jackson, General Sherman, Pearl Harbor, The Pullman Strike, The Great Chicago Fire, and The Great San Francisco Earthquake.
So, if you have time in your busy schedule, I recommend adding “Map of Time, A Trip Into The Past” to your reading list.
