Description

Thirty years after the most legendary shipwreck on America's inland waters. Michael Schumacher examines the productive life and untimely demise of the Edmund Fitzgerald.

The disappearance of the Edmund Fitzgerald remains one of the great unsolved mysteries in maritime history. The specifics of what happened to the "Mighty Fitz" in the early hours of November 10, 1975, will never be known. What we do know: The Edmund Fitzgerald, a massive ore carrier, had been fighting its way through a pounding November storm on Lake Superior. She was losing ground—the Fitz's radar was out, and she had taken on water in the midst of gale-force winds and mountainous seas—but there was no reason to think she wouldn't find safe harbor at Whitefish Point, Michigan. Last word from the ship's captain: "We are holding our own." Suddenly the ship disappeared from radar. By all indications, the 29-man crew had no idea they were in mortal danger, and they nosedived to Lake Superior's bottom before they could call for help. A massive search ensued but failed to find a single survivor. Michael Schumacher relays in vivid detail the story of the Edmund Fitzgerald, its many productive years on the waters of the Great Lakes, its tragic demise, the search effort and investigation, as well as the speculation and the controversy that followed in the wake of the disaster.
