    Gordon Lightfoot had a song about it : The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald. Seven substantive stanzas.

    I have never heard of this event before, but thank you for sharing. Such a tragic thing.

    If it hadn't been for the song, this event would be almost totally unnoticed.

    Let's hear it for Mr. Lightfoot. By the way, he has visited the families of the victimes every year since the tragedy.
