    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'.

  • 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:

    The legend lives on from the Chippewa on down
    Of the big lake they call Gitche Gumee
    The lake, it is said, never gives up her dead
    When the skies of November turn gloomy
    With a load of iron ore twenty-six thousand tons more
    Than the Edmund Fitzgerald weighed empty
    [Former version:] That good ship and true was a bone to be chewed
    [Latter version:] That good ship and crew was a bone to be chewed
    When the gales of November came early

    The ship was the pride of the American side
    Coming back from some mill in Wisconsin
    As the big freighters go, it was bigger than most
    With a crew and good captain well seasoned
    Concluding some terms with a couple of steel firms
    When they left fully loaded for Cleveland
    Then later that night when the ship's bell rang
    Could it be the north wind they'd been feelin'?

    The wind in the wires made a tattle-tale sound
    When the wave broke over the railing
    And every man knew, as the captain did too
    'Twas the witch of November come stealin'
    The dawn came late and the breakfast had to wait
    When the gales of November came slashin'
    When afternoon came it was freezing rain
    In the face of a hurricane west wind

    When suppertime came, the old cook came on deck
    Saying, Fellas, it's too rough to feed ya.
    [Former version:] At seven PM a main hatchway caved in
    [Latter version:] At seven PM it grew dark, it was then
    He said, Fellas, it's been good to know ya.
    The captain wired in he had water comin' in
    And the good ship and crew was in peril
    And later that night when his lights went out of sight
    Came the wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald

    Does anyone know where the love of God goes
    When the waves turn the minutes to hours?
    The searchers all say they'd have made Whitefish Bay
    If they'd put fifteen more miles behind her
    They might have split up or they might have capsized
    They may have broke deep and took water
    And all that remains is the faces and the names
    Of the wives and the sons and the daughters

    Lake Huron rolls, Superior sings
    In the rooms of her ice-water mansion
    Old Michigan steams like a young man's dreams
    The islands and bays are for sportsmen
    And farther below, Lake Ontario
    Takes in what Lake Erie can send her
    And the iron boats go as the mariners all know
    With the gales of November remembered

    [Former version:] In a musty old hall in Detroit they prayed
    [Latter version:] In a rustic old hall in Detroit they prayed
    In the Maritime Sailors' Cathedral
    The church bell chimed 'til it rang twenty-nine times
    For each man on the Edmund Fitzgerald
    The legend lives on from the Chippewa on down
    Of the big lake they call Gitche Gumee
    Superior, they said, never gives up her dead
    When the gales of November come early

    This is our version of the Gordon Lightfoot song Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald. It was recorded on a Korg 32XD. I remember this song as a child, hearing it in the car on our annual summer trip from Detroit to my Dad's Uncle's Cherry Farm in Traverse City. I love when a song tells a story, and when it's a true story like this, it's that much more moving. There are a couple twists from the Lightfoot version. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did making it. God Bless the 29 men who went down, and God Bless their families.

    6:02

    Here's one that I have been aching to 'try' for a VERY long time, and only mustered up the courage to give it a whirl today. It's probably the longest cover song I have ever recorded, but a goody, none the less.
    This song was written, composed, and performed by Canadian singer-songwriter Gordon Lightfoot to commemorate the sinking of the bulk carrier SS Edmund Fitzgerald on Lake Superior on November 10, 1975. Appearing originally on Lightfoot's 1976 album SUMMERTIME DREAM, the single version hit number 1 in his native Canada on November 20, 1976, barely a year after the disaster. In the United States, it reached number 1 in CASHBOX and number 2 for two weeks in the BILLBOARD HOT 100. Lightfoot considers this song to be his finest work.
    I hope you will enjoy my rendition of this Canadian Classic. Thanks for tuning in.

  • Gordon Lightfoot - Discusses The Wreck Of The Edmund Fitzgerald | GRAMMYs

    2:18

    GRAMMY-nominated folk/rock legend Gordon Lightfoot recently participated in an installment of the GRAMMY Museum's An Evening With series. Before an intimate audience at the Museum's Clive Davis Theater, Lightfoot discussed his early music education and his 1976 hit The Wreck Of The Edmund Fitzgerald, among other topics. Lightfoot also performed a brief set, including The Wreck Of The Edmund Fitzgerald and his 1974 hit Sundown.

    ['The Wreck Of The Edmund Fitzgerald'] ” it's a whole story unto itself, from start to finish, and it still goes on [to] this day, said Lightfoot.

    Regarded as one of Canada's leading singer/songwriters, Lightfoot first gained acclaim in the 1960s penning hits for artists such as Peter, Paul And Mary and Marty Robbins. After signing with United Artists Records in 1966, Lightfoot released his debut album, Lightfoot! He followed with two classic albums, 1967's The Way I Feel and 1968's Did She Mention My Name? ” the latter earned him his first career GRAMMY nomination for Best Folk Performance. He scored his first platinum and lone No. 1 album to date with 1974's Sundown, which featured the chart-topping title track and Top 10 hit Carefree Highway. Cold On The Shoulder was released in 1975 and reached No. 10, followed by the platinum-selling Summertime Dream (1976, No. 12). Considered one of Lightfoot's finest albums, Summertime Dream featured The Wreck Of The Edmund Fitzgerald, a ballad about the final hours of the SS Edmund Fitzgerald, which sank in Lake Superior in 1975. The song garnered Lightfoot two GRAMMY nominations, including Song Of The Year, at the 19th Annual GRAMMY Awards.Subscribe NOW to GRAMMYs on YouTube:

    One of the most tragic maritime events of the Great Lakes occurred. The Edmund Fitzgerald, one of the largest ore carrying ships, sank in a terrible storm, taking all 29 of her crew. One year after the sinking, Gordon Lightfoot wrote this song as a memorial to those involved with the tragedy.

    The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald Remember the Edmund.

    I am no Gordon Lightfoot but my song Remember the Edmund is a tribute to the Wreck, the Captain and Crew of the Edmund Fitzgerald, launched on June 8, 1958. Until 1971 she was the largest ship on the Great Lakes. Although she had reported having some difficulties during a gale on Lake Superior the Fitzgerald sank suddenly on November 10, 1975 in 535 feet of water without sending any distress signals. The site of the loss is: in Canadian waters approximately 17 miles from the entrance to Whitefish Bay. All 29 hands in the crew perished, presumably by drowning. The incident is the most famous disaster in the history of Great Lakes shipping, and is the subject of Gordon Lightfoots hit song, The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald.

    The Fitzgerald departed down bound from Superior Wisconsin on the afternoon of Sunday, November 9, 1975 under Captain Ernest M. McSorley. She was heading for the steel mill on Zug Island, near Detroit, Michigan, with a full cargo of taconite. A second freighter, Arthur M. Anderson, destined for Gary Indiana, out of Two Harbors Minnesota, joined up with the Fitzgerald and being the faster ship, took the lead while Anderson trailed not far behind.

    The last communication from the doomed ship came at approximately 7:10 pm, when the Anderson notified the Fitzgerald of an upbound ship and asked how she was doing. McSorley reported, We are holding our own.

    It is believed that the Fitzgerald sank shortly after last radio transmission, all hands lost.

    Join me as I pay tribute to the brave Captain and Crew, who now rest in the shadows of the Edmund.

    This was written by Canadian songwriter and singer, Gordon Lightfoot in 1976. The song was meant as a memorial and tribute to the entire crew of 29 whose bodies sank with the ship 15 nautical miles from Whitefish bay, near the twin cities of Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan and Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario.

    This song is a pretty accurate account of the sinking of the SS Edmund Fitzgerald on November 10, 1975 in Canadian waters.

    It was quite a news headline at the time. The Mighty Fitz, sometimes called 'The Titanic of the Great Lakes,' was the largest vessel on the Great Lakes when she was launched in 1958, and she remains the largest ship to have sunk there. She was a regular workhorse, setting seasonal haul records 6 times. The captain went to some lengths to entertain spectators at the locks with running commentary about the Fitzgerald and he would blast music on the PA system day and night as they passed through the St. Clair and Detroit rivers between Lake Huron and Lake Eerie about once a week.
