  • Gordon Lightfoot - The Wreck Of The Edmund Fitzgerald

    6:22

    The final voyage of the Edmund Fitzgerald began November 9, 1975 at the Burlington Northern Railroad Dock No.1, Superior, Wisconsin. Captain Ernest M. McSorley had loaded her with 26,116 long tons of taconite pellets, made of processed iron ore, heated and rolled into marble-size balls. Departing Superior about 2:30 pm, she was soon joined by the Arthur M. Anderson, which had departed Two Harbors, Minnesota under Captain Bernie Cooper. The two ships were in radio contact. The Fitzgerald being the faster took the lead, with the distance between the vessels ranging from 10 to 15 miles.

    Aware of a building November storm entering the Great Lakes from the great plains, Captain McSorley and Captain Cooper agreed to take the northerly course across Lake Superior, where they would be protected by highlands on the Canadian shore. This took them between Isle Royale and the Keweenaw Peninsula. They would later make a turn to the southeast to eventually reach the shelter of Whitefish Point.

    Weather conditions continued to deteriorate. Gale warnings had been issued at 7 pm on November 9, upgraded to storm warnings early in the morning of November 10. While conditions were bad, with winds gusting to 50 knots and seas 12 to 16 feet, both Captains had often piloted their vessels in similar conditions. In the early afternoon of November 10, the Fitzgerald had passed Michipicoten Island and was approaching Caribou Island. The Anderson was just approaching Michipicoten, about three miles off the West End Light.

    Captain Cooper maintained that he watched the Edmund Fitzgerald pass far too close to Six Fathom Shoal to the north of Caribou Island. He could clearly see the ship and the beacon on Caribou on his radar set and could measure the distance between them. He and his officers watched the Fitzgerald pass right over the dangerous area of shallow water. By this time, snow and rising spray had obscured the Fitzgerald from sight, visible 17 miles ahead on radar.

    At 3:30 pm that afternoon, Captain McSorley radioed Captain Cooper and said: “Anderson, this is the Fitzgerald. I have a fence rail down, two vents lost or damaged, and a list. I’m checking down. Will you stay by me till I get to Whitefish?” McSorley was checking down his speed to allow the Anderson to close the distance for safety. Captain Cooper asked McSorley if he had his pumps going, and McSorley said, “Yes, both of them.”


    “The Wreck Site II” by David Conklin: Available online in the Shipwreck Coast Museum Store.
    As the afternoon wore on, radio communications with the Fitzgerald concerned navigational information but no extraordinarily alarming reports were offered by Captain McSorley. At about 5:20 pm the crest of a wave smashed the Anderson’s starboard lifeboat, making it unusable. Captain Cooper reported winds from the NW x W (305 ) at a steady 58 knots with gusts to 70 knots, and seas of 18 to 25 feet.

    According to Captain Cooper, about 6:55 pm, he and the men in the Anderson’s pilothouse felt a “bump”, felt the ship lurch, and then turned to see a monstrous wave engulfing their entire vessel from astern. The wave worked its way along the deck, crashing on the back of the pilothouse, driving the bow of the Anderson down into the sea.

    “Then the Anderson just raised up and shook herself off of all that water – barrooff – just like a big dog. Another wave just like the first one or bigger hit us again. I watched those two waves head down the lake towards the Fitzgerald, and I think those were the two that sent him under.”

    Morgan Clark, first mate of the Anderson, kept watching the Fitzgerald on the radar set to calculate her distance from some other vessels near Whitefish Point. He kept losing sight of the Fitzgerald on the radar from sea return, meaning that seas were so high they interfered with the radar reflection. First mate Clark spoke to the Fitzgerald one last time, about 7:10 pm:

    November 10, 1975 the bulk freighter Edmund Fitzgerald sank in Lake Superior with all 29 hands.
    She encountered heavy weather and in the early evening , suddenly foundered approximately 17 miles from the entrance to Whitefish Bay (47º North Latitude, 85º 7' West Longitude)

    Captain McSorley of the FITZ had indicated he was having difficulty and was taking on water. She was listing to port and had two of three ballast pumps working. She had lost her radar and damage was noted to ballast tank vent pipes and he was overheard on the radio saying, don't allow nobody (sic) on deck. McSorley said it was the worst storm he had ever seen. All 29 officers and crew, including a Great Lakes Maritime Academy cadet, went down with the ship, which lies broken in two sections in 530 feet of water

    6:32

    Shortly after 7pm on the 10th of November, 1975, the mighty freighter S.S. Edmund Fitzgerald,with Captain Ernest M. McSorley in command and laden with taconite pellets, having left the ports of Duluth/Superior, was caught up in the terrible storms of November on Lake Superior with near hurricane-force winds and waves up to 35 feet (11 m) high, went down near Whitefish Bay, with it's full crew of 29 going down with her. I was 14 then, living in the northern Minnesota town of Ely, and heard the news at breakfast before school the next morning. A year later Gordon Lightfoot released the iconic folk song, The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald, memorializing the tragedy. This video is my homage to the 29 men who lost their lives in the wreck and the mighty, six-time record-breaking ship itself.

    All rights to the beautiful artwork and photos I used belongs to he individual artists and photographers as well as various media outlets involved, and a big thank you to Gordon Lightfoot for the use of his song. ????Like ????, ????Subscribe and ????Comment!

    And another thank you to my friend, ex-merchant Navy man Kenny Short, without who's inspiration I may not have made this video. I hope you enjoy, and remember the 'Good ship and true, with it's well-seasoned crew' who were lost when the Gales of November came early.

    The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald written and performed by Gordon Lightfoot off his album 'Summertime Dream'.

    Hope ya'll enjoy, and if you do, please...
