1912 - She was 19 years old when the RMS Titanic sank in April. The RMS Titanic was a British built and run passenger liner that was billed as "unsinkable." On its maiden voyage from Southampton England to New York City, carrying about 2,224 passengers and crew - from the wealthiest people in the world to poor emigrants from Europe, the Titanic hit an iceberg. Five of her watertight compartments failed but she was designed to survive only 4 being flooded. She began to sink. There were only enough lifeboats for about half of the passengers so over 1,000 remained behind while "women and children first" were loaded. Over 1500 died, making it the largest maritime disaster in modern history.

1928 - By the time she was 35 years old, Mickie Mouse was born! He first appeared in Disney's Steamboat Willie, along with Minnie.

It became the most popular cartoon of its day.

A bystander saw her raise her arm, grabbed it, and the shot went wild.
