The Atlantic was crossed early on by voyagers like Saint Brendan, Leif Erickson and Christopher Columbus. Later noteworthy crossers include Charles Lindbergh (1927) and Wrong Way Corrigan (1938). (The first aerial crossing was by balloon in 1844, however—by Edgar Allan Poe.) It was the site of such notable disasters as the Titanic, the Andrea Doria and the Lusitania, and the sinking of the Bismarck.
