On May 7, 1915, the Lusitania was struck by a single torpedo and sank in less than 20 minutes off the coast of Ireland. Many Americans died, including Elbert and Alice Hubbard and Albert Vanderbilt. The nature of the explosion that sank the ship, as well as the United States, German, and English politics surrounding her demise, still remain controversial topics to this day.
