The Centennial Anniversary of the Sinking of the Titanic

Halifax, Nova Scotia, plays an integral role in the history of the sinking of the Titanic.  Each summer when we go to Cape Breton we are likely to spend a few days in Halifax.  We often visit The Maritime Museum of the Atlantic where a permanent exhibit is dedicated to Titanic: The Unsinkable Ship and Halifax. We have visited the cemeteries as well where 150 victims are buried.
