The collision and foundering of La Bourgogne


“La Bourgogne”

A Titanic before the Titanic ?

 

The French passenger liner La Bourgogne, from the Compagnie Generale Transatlantique, sank after a collision with the British ship Cromartyshire, in dense fog, 60 miles south of Sable Island near Nova Scotia, in the Atlantic, on 4th July 1898.

Of 711 passengers and crewmen, only 165 survived, thus recording a terrible death toll of 546 lives !

    I tend not to drop a ton of remarks, however I glanced through a few responses on The collision and foundering of La Bourgogne Maritime & Travel news. I do have some questions for you if it’s allright. Is it only me or does it appear like a few of the remarks look as if they are written by brain dead individuals? :-P And, if you are posting on additional social sites, I’d like to keep up with everything fresh you have to post. Would you list of the complete urls of all your social networking pages like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?
