    God bless the families and survivors. “Let the Titanic rest in peace as a memorial to the arrogance of man…” quoted from Eva Hart, survivor.

    Why is the quiz concerned about miner details. What is important are the facts about the people involved in every aspect of building and the survivors. Knowing the time period is important to understand the out come of the Rich,Famous and unfortunate.
