It’s November, and because it’s November we take a moment to remember the sinking of the S. S. Edmund Fitzgerald on Lake Superior (November 10, 1975). We pay our respects to the brave men who lost their lives and to their families.
This tragedy was put to song by Gordon Lightfoot “Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald“. The ore carrier pictured above is not the Edmund Fitzgerald, but one of its sister ships the S. S. Way c.1940 operated by the same shipping line.
