1805 - November 15 - Lewis and Clark reach Pacific
Nov. 7, 1805 - Camped opposite Pillar Rock, between Brookfield and Dahlia, Washington, west of Jim Crow Point. "Great joy in camp we are in view of the Ocian this great Pacific Ocean which we been so long anxious to See. and the roreing or noise made by the waves braking on the rockey shores (as I Suppose) may be heard distinctly." Although they were really only seeing the Columbia Estuary, the men of the Corps were certainly happy to be near their goal.

Nov. 15, 1805 - Lewis reached the Pacific Ocean near modern Seaview, Washington. Clark noted that it rained until 3 p.m.; there were 11 straight days of rain; he moved camp once more to Haley's Bay, where they stayed until November 24.

1912 - April 15 - Titanic sinks in the North Atlantic
At 2:20 a.m. on April 15, 1912, the British ocean liner Titanic sinks into the North Atlantic Ocean about 400 miles south of Newfoundland, Canada. The massive ship, which carried 2,200 passengers and crew, had struck an iceberg two and half hours before.

The Titanic Sank With 1,350 Aboard
Most of the Carpathis's Rescued Passengers are Women and Children Who Went First.
OTHERS MUST BE DEAD
Col. John Jacob Astor, Benjamin Guggenheim, G.D. Widener, Isadore Straus, William F. Stead and Major Archibald Butts, Aide to President are Among the Famous Men Who are Reported Among the Missing. The Story of the Disaster.

The appalling magnitude of the wreck of the giant liner Titanic has been but little mitigated by the fragmentary information which has filtered in today. The rescuing steamer Carpathia has 868 survivors aboard, according to the latest news received at the offices of the White Star line. But except for this, favorable details are insignificant compared with the supreme... Read MORE...

1914 - May 29 – The ocean liner RMS Empress of Ireland sinks in the Gulf of St. Lawrence; 1,012 lives are lost.

1922 - Crimes Peculiar to the Sea.
The sea has its own peculiar crimes - coopering, barratry, piracy, blackbird and, better known, perhaps, mutiny. It has its own queer unsolved crimes as the case of the Marie Celeste. But the sea today is a more law-abiding place than it used to be. The souvenir hunteres are the real sea criminals of modern times. There are accounts in the office of a well-known firm of passenger-carrying ships where the total losses of crockery, linen and plate in a single ship on a single trip were set out. The totals per voyaged reaced such fingers as $7,300, $6,100 and $4,500. Now, crockery, we will admit, can be an accidental loss. But linen to the value of $4,500 does not get blown overboard between New York and Southampton. Nor does electric plate to the value of $1,000 slip down the sink grating.

1932 - May 20–May 21 – Amelia Earhart flies from the USA to Derry, Northern Ireland in 14 hours 54 minutes.
Amelia Earhart is First Woman to Fly Atlantic Ocean Alone

New York, May 21. (AP) - Word was received here this afternoon that Mrs. Putnam had taken off in her own plane for London.

Culmore, Ireland, May 21 (AP) Amelia Earhart Putnam brought down her read and gold monoplane in a field near here this afternoon and became the first woman ever to fly the Atlantic alone.

She landed on this side of the ocean five years to the day after Colonel Charles A. Lindbergh arrived in Paris successfully completing the first solo flight across the Atlantic by a man.

"I've don it!" Mrs. Putnam exclaimed when she got out of her ship.

She had intended to go to Paris but it was necessary to cut the flight short because her exhaust manifold had burned out and the gasoline line was broken causing a little leakage.

Woman is Unhurt
Mrs. Putnam who took off from Harbor Grace, N.F., at 4:51 p.m. Friday got a lift by motor to Londonderry, 5 miles away, where the first thing she did was to get ... Read MORE...
