Historical Thursday - SS Edmund Fitzgerald

It's been forty years since an infamous storm wrecked the SS Edmund Fitzgerald, the largest ship of her time to work North America's Great Lakes.  She sank on Lake Superior in a storm on November 10, 1975, with her crew of 29.  Read more of the details on wikipedia here.


Also, on usatoday.com, they commemorate the event along with a large pictorial here.


Finally, on the Zeezy YouTube channel, listen again to the haunting song from Gordon Lightfoot, "The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald."
