110 years after its sinking, the legacy and tragedy of the Titanic still endures. But why? Join Historian Greg Caggiano for an overview of the voyage and sinking of the Titanic in a commemorative virtual lecture. Included will be an overview of the ship's construction, daily life for passengers, and what went wrong that led to its sinking. As an avid food blogger, Greg will also be focusing on culinary aspects of the journey, such as the last meals served to the first, second, and third class passengers.
