Today, 39 years ago, the Edmund Fitzgerald was lost. Broken in two, she lays in 530 feet of water near the Canada US boundary near Whitefish bay in Lake Superior.
29 men died that day, Nov 10 1975.
Gordon Lightfoot made a large sum of money with his ballad, not much of which was facts. But were it not for his ballad, there'd be little remembrance of that loss.
29 men died, and that is the sad part.Their families remember though.
