Museum Remembers Edmund Fitzgerald Sinking

WHITEFISH POINT, Mich. (AP) — A ceremony is planned in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula to mark the 35th anniversary of the sinking of the Edmund Fitzgerald.

The Great Lakes Shipwreck Museum in Whitefish Point is holding its annual memorial service on Wednesday night. The public is welcome, but seating is on a first-come, first-served basis.

The museum sits not far from where the 729-foot ore freighter sank in Lake Superior on Nov. 10, 1975. All 29 men aboard were killed.

The sinking spawned a well-known song by Gordon Lightfoot, “The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald.”

Also Wednesday, the Dossin Great Lakes Museum on Belle Isle in Detroit hosts its annual Lost Mariners Remembrance ceremony.
