On 10 Nov 1975, the freighter Edmund Fitzgerald sank in Lake Superior due to high winds.

http://www.shipwreckmuseum.com/ will have a special webcast tonight

As the big freighters go it was bigger than most

I'm already sorry I posted that.

My wife and I heard this song on the radio a couple weeks ago and I did some research on the wreck after listening. I could have sworn it was way earlier. I was in high school when this happened and the way news was back then, I heard about the disaster when Lightfoot's song was released.

The Wreck of The Edmund Fitzgerald occured on my wife's 12th birthday. Hmmmm.

Gitchagoomee.

I can TOTALLY see why you'd have thought that, based on your reasoning. :)

God bless the men of 2nd Bn, 127th Inf, 32d "Red Arrow" Brigade, WI Army Nat'l Guard...good luck, and come home soon.

That story is still worth a mention or two up here, seeing as how she was "comin' back from some mill in Wisconsin."

I even saved file video of earlier coverage of that sinking...somewhere 'round here...

On a lighter note, "The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald" is a GREAT karaoke song to do to get under your friends-who-wanna-sing-dammit's skin...'cause it's longer than an Iron Butterfly drum solo.
