Retrace the wreck of The Edmund Fitzgerald

Kelly McCommons

On this date in 1975, the Edmund Fitzgerald was lost in Lake Superior. All 29 crew members lost their lives when the ship sank on the eastern waters of Lake Superior. At the time, she was the largest vessel in the Great Lakes. To this day she is the largest ship to ever be lost there. Below you can retrace the steps of the great ship until it sank.
