ANCHORAGE, Alaska, Oct. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- The world remembers the tragic sinking of the Titanic, but not many are aware of its predecessor, the Atlantic, that sank nearly 40 years earlier and left fewer survivors. Bob Love tells this heartbreaking story in his new book, "Destiny's Voyage: SS Atlantic the Titanic of 1873" (now available through AuthorHouse).

>>Was this the ship that sank under the weight of ice form ing on the decks and superstructures?<<

Nope. This was the ship that ran onto the rocks and broke up just outside Halifax as she attempted to put in to port to take on extra coal.
Hmmm... If you were to have an incredibly vast amount of time on your hands and did a bit of amazing multiplication, division and square rooting, you could probably make April 1 1873, into April 15 1912 and start an absurdly nonsensical firmament-based conspiracy theory...

Ah, to be an unemployed writer...

So which ship sank under ice, then?
