She was known all around the world, thanks to Gordon Lightfoot’s famous song. But most people never knew that the song is a factual account of the sinking of a famous and beloved iron ore ship, the Edmund Fitzgerald. The sinking of the Mighty Fitz was one of the worst maritime tragedies in US history. Today, as we do every year, we honor her crew, their loved ones, and all of our maritime families.

Also, Happy Veteran’s Day to all our veterans and their loved ones.
