1912 - Titanic: the maiden voyage from Southampton to New York City

The Titanic was the largest passenger steamship in the world at the time of her launching, and her builders hoped that she would dominate the transatlantic ocean liner business. During her maiden voyage she struck an iceberg and sank, on April 14, 1912, at 11:40 P.M. The sinking resulted in great loss of life, ranking as one of the worst peacetime maritime disasters in history, and by far the most famous.

1920 - The Ban: The beginning of Prohibition in the USA

Prohibition began on January 17, 1920, when the Eighteenth Amendment went into effect. A total of 1,520 Federal Prohibition agents (police) were given the task of enforcing the law. At midnight on the night of January 16th, 1920, one of the personal habits and customs of most Americans suddenly came to a halt. Prohibition was meant to reduce the consumption of alcohol, seen by some as the work of the devil, and thereby reduce crime, poverty, death rates, and improve the economy and the quality of life. National prohibition of alcohol was undertaken to reduce crime and corruption, solve social problems, reduce the tax burden created by prisons and poorhouses, and improve health and hygiene in America. This, however, was undoubtedly to no avail. The Prohibition amendment of the 1920s was ineffective because it was unenforceable, it caused the explosive growth of crime, and it increased the amount of alcohol consumption.

1937 - Hindenburg: Die Zeppelin-Explosion in Lakehurst

 Die Hindenburg-Explosion in Lakehurst. ”Oh, die Menschheit und all die Passagiere”, stöhnt ein Radioreporter, als die ”Hindenburg” am 6. Mai 1937 bei New York in Flammen aufgeht. 34 Menschen kommen in dem Inferno ums Leben. Das erste Passagierunglück in der Geschichte der Luftschiffahrt ist zugleich das letzte. Die große Zeit der Zeppeline ist vorbei.

1937 - Hindenburg disaster: The End of Airships, Explosion of the Lakehurst

On May 6, 1937 at 19:25, the German zeppelin LZ 129 Hindenburg caught fire and was utterly destroyed within a minute while attempting to dock with its mooring mast at Lakehurst Naval Air Station in New Jersey. Of the 97 people on board, 13 passengers and 22 crew-members were killed. One member of the ground crew also died, bringing the death toll to 36. The LZ-129 Hindenburg and her sister-ship LZ-130 Graf Zeppelin II were the two largest aircraft ever built. The Hindenburg was named after the President of Germany, Paul von Hindenburg. It was a brand-new, all-aluminium design: 245 m long (804 feet), 41 m in diameter (135 ft), containing 200,000 m³ (7,060,000 ft³) of gas in 16 bags or cells, with a useful lift of 112.1 metric tons force (1.099 MN), powered by four 1200 horsepower (890 kW) Mercedes Benz engines giving it a maximum speed of 135 km/h (84 mph). It could carry 72 passengers (50 transatlantic) and had a crew of 61.

1963 - Assassination of John F. Kennedy: the thirty-fifth President of the United States was assassinated in Dallas

John Fitzgerald Kennedy often referred to as Jack Kennedy or JFK, was the 35th (1961–1963) President of the United States. He was the youngest ever to be elected president (not to be confused with the youngest person ever to serve as president, a record held by Teddy Roosevelt), the first U.S. President born in the 20th century, and the youngest president to die. As of 2005, he was also the only Roman Catholic ever to be elected president, the last Democratic Party candidate from the North to be elected president, and the last President to die in office. Following Kennedy’s assassination on November 22nd, 1963, the world mourned his death. Presidents, prime ministers, and members of royalty walked behind the casket at his funeral. Many Americans view Kennedy as a "martyr." In a survey conducted by C-SPAN that ranked American presidents, a panel of historians rated him eighth overall and the general populace rated him twelfth of the forty-two presidents who have served. His agenda, however, was actually rather incomplete at his death—most of his civil rights policies came to fruition through his successor, Lyndon Johnson.
