MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — A century ago today, the grandest ship ever built was cruising along without worry on the North Atlantic. The rest, of course, is history.
Titanic, thought unsinkable, stuck an iceberg late on the night of April 14th, 1912. She sank the next morning. More than 1,500 people died.
Interest in the big ship and her demise on her maiden voyage is peaking with the 100th anniversary. John Joslyn sees it. He’s the owner and operator of two Titanic museums, one in Branson, Missouri, and one in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee.
Joslyn joined WCCO’s John Hines.
