Gordon Lightfoot - The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald
Today is the 35th anniversary of the sinking of the Great Lakes ore carrier, the Edmund Fitzgerald. The shipped was sunk by “The Witch of November”, a strong Lake Superior storm that often occurs around the same time each year. In memory here is one of my all time favorite songs by Gorden Lightfoot. Growing up in Michigan this is one story I remember well.
