The Red Army (Krasnaya Armiya) was the name for the Military Forces in Russia. It served from 1918 to 1946. The word ‘red’ symbolized the blood shed in the fights. The Red Army was found right after the Russian Revolution ended, in 1917, and the Bolsheviks came to power. It was officially founded in February 23, 1918. This was when the Soviet Republic announced the first victory if the Red Army against the Germans. Weeks later the Bolsheviks signed the Treaty of Brest-Litovsk with Germany to get peace; which never came since after that Russia sank into the Civil War. Some historians say that the victory for the Red Army never happened. Anyhow, Russia, Ukraine, and Belarus celebrate the February 23.

Lenin was the leader of The Bolsheviks. When he entered the Government Party, he promised Russia peace. They wanted to destroy the capitalist system and introduce communism, and so they did. All they wished was to seize their power and create disorder in Russia, so the Revolution would start a new phase. Anyhow, they promised the Russians a good life; they offered jobs, services, and most importantly peace

The Titanic turned out to be a tragedy. I am truly sorry of what happened to The Titanic and it makes me really sad that it sank. I would’ve like The Titanic to be more careful, so there wouldn’t have been a tragedy that big. Although, we all learn from mistakes and this event taught us and will still teach us  what to do and what not to do. Thanks to The Titanic, now boats are safer and take more precautions.
