On November 10th, 1975, an unassuming cargo vessel designed to steam the Great Lakes was lost with all hands. Thanks to Gordon Lightfoot's song about it, it may be the second or third most famous shipwreck in history.



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!"
