The SS Cimbria Disaster

On January 22, 1883, the New York Times lamented: It is a mockery of science and human skill that a ship so well-appointed and furnished with all the modern appliances, that the Cimbria should be run down and sunk, with nearly all on board.” Before the Titanic, there was the Cimbria, and the victims of the Cimbria disaster deserve to be remembered.
