The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald

Tuesday, January 23, 2018

No Great Lakes shipwreck is more well-known than the Edmund Fitzgerald, which disappeared into a stormy Lake Superior on November 10, 1975, when wind gusts peaked at nearly 100 miles per hour and waves reached the height of three-story buildings. The Edmund Fitzgerald remains the largest shipwreck on the Great Lakes to this day. Award-winning newspaper columnist and author Rochelle Pennington presents the story of a wreck and its mysterious legacy. From the launch of the ship to its final radio broadcasts, and from the Fitz's discovery on Superior's bottom to the raising of artifacts from its watery grave, Pennington delves into the various theories and opposing views of dive detectives who are still trying to solve the mystery of what led to the demise of the 29-man crew. This program also includes a complete circle tour of Lake Superior's extraordinary shorelines. Free to attend, no registration required.
