The unsinkable Titanic was a dream come true. Four city blocks long. A passenger list worth $250 million. But on her maiden voyage in April 1912, that dream became a nightmare when the giant ship struck an iceberg and sank in the icy North Atlantic. More than 1,500 lives were lost in one of the greatest disasters of the 20th century.
