Today in 1975, a Great Lakes Freighter Sank in Lake Superior

Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald

The disaster is one of the best-known in the history of Great Lakes shipping. Gordon Lightfoot made it the subject of his 1976 hit song “The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald after reading an article, “The Cruelest Month”, in the November 24, 1975, issue of Newsweek.

And for those of an astrological mindset, here’s the chart:

The last communication from the ship came at approximately 7:10 p.m., when Arthur M. Anderson notified Edmund Fitzgerald of an upbound ship and asked how she was doing. McSorley reported, “We are holding our own.” She sank minutes later. No distress signal was received, and ten minutes later, Arthur M. Anderson lost the ability either to reach Edmund Fitzgerald by radio or to detect her on radar.

The chart is timed for that last communication.

“When the gales of November came early.”
