SS La Bourgogne, Passenger liner in France

SS La Bourgogne was a large ocean liner built for the French Compagnie Generale Transatlantique.

La Bourgogne sank on July 4, 1898, following a collision with British sailing ship Cromartyshire, resulting in the loss of 549 lives.

The loss of SS La Bourgogne brought about changes to maritime regulations regarding the safety of passengers at sea.

Survivors from the sinking had a higher chance if they were crew members rather than passengers.

A dramatic account of the sinking written by survivor William H. Hoyt titled, 'Fall of a Titan' has become famous.
