Those are all good ones as well. I don't Celine Dion will be singing a ballad for an Exxon Valdez movie anytime soon however
Another famous ship sinking (albiet done by the Royal Navy in WW2) is the sinking of The Bismarck. That thing had massive guns and after sinking The Hood, the Royal Navy decided to unleash hell on waves to sink that ship.
I used to have a big thick book by Bob Ballard on his discovery of that wreck. Helluva story too.

I'm sure that had Pearl Harbor not started the actions of WW2, alot of people probably wouldn't know about it either. I'm starting to realize that politics are certainly a bigger part in education than what it was 10, 20, 30 yrs ago. You've got states like Texas and California who tell teachers what they can and can't teach in history classes and that ain't nowhere near right. I don't understand what politics have to do with making and getting history right. Like they've always said "You can write new history but you can't rewrite history"
