Wordless Wednesday: The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald

35 years ago, 29 crew members were lost in Lake Superior, Michigan on November 10 1975.

A famous tribute song to the Edmund Fitzgerald was written and performed by singer Gordon Lightfoot.

Every year at the Mariner's Church on the Detroit River, the bell is rung twenty-nine times in honor of each lost crew member. The memorial service also reminds people of the beauty and power of Lake Superior.

  1. I wasn't alive when this happened, but when I was little, I was so fascinated with this ship for whatever reason after my mom told me about it. I'd head to the Dossin Museum a lot and actually this spurred my interest in other shipwrecks like the Titanic and Lusitania.
