Lusitania Telegraph Recovered!

Post by Wade Hampton III » Sat Jul 29, 2017 8:33 am

The Lusitania was the largest ship in the world when it made its maiden voyage
in 1907. The British ship was bound for Liverpool after a transatlantic crossing
in 1915, when it was struck by a torpedo from a German submarine off the southeast
coast of Ireland during World War I. It sank in just 18 minutes.

Of the 1,962 passengers and crew aboard at the time, 1,198 died, most of them
from drowning and hypothermia. The attack on civilians prompted diplomatic
outrage (though there is still debate over whether the ship's cargo secretly
included war supplies and munitions). As 128 Americans were killed in the
disaster, the event helped push the United States into World War I..

Gaunt visited the Du Pont munitions plant in Christfield, New Jersey, and Du Pont thereupon shipped tons of pyroxyline, packaged in burlap, to the Cunard wharf in New York City, where it was loaded onto the Lusitania. It quite evidently accounts for the item on the ship’s manifest of 3,813 40-pound containers of “cheese,” which were shipped along with 696 containers of “butter.” That these packages were not butter and cheese is clear: they were not shipped in refrigerated compartments; their destination was listed as the Royal Navy’s Weapons Testing Establishment; and no one filed an insurance claim for the lost “butter and cheese.”
It's not diversity, it's displacement.
