100 Years Ago Today: The Washington Times Front Page on the Evening of the Titanic’s Sinking

The Washington Times on April 15th, 1912
100 years ago today, the Washington Times front page reported on the Titanic's sinking. Little did they know that one of D.C.'s own, Archibald Butt, was on board.

This was the front page of the Washington Times in the evening of Monday, April 15th, 1912. It’s rather haunting seeing this today, over a hundred years later. Many Washingtonians likely went to bed thinking things would probably be fine with the Titanic (and D.C.’s famous resident and White House aide, Archibald Butt).
