Sinking Of The Edmund Fitzgerald–35 Years Ago Today


The Edmund Fitzgerald, one of the largest ore carriers in 1975, became the stuff of legend when she sank.   Thirty-five years ago today Lake Superior produced a storm that sank the ship, and claimed the lives of the 29 men on board.  Every November 10th ’round these parts the words of Gordon Lightfoot remind us that Mother Nature is really always in charge.
