Seen This Ship's Bell In Michigan
« on: February 09, 2018, 08:16:37 AM »
We traveled across the northern U S two years ago. We stopped at Whitefish Bay to view the Lighthouse and the Shipwreck Museum located there. They have the Ship's Bell off the Edmund Fitzgerald in that shipwreck museum. This video has been viewed over 28 million times. Amazing!

Gordon Lightfoot, read an article in Newsweek Magazine about this ship and how it disappeared in Lake Superior. He told his friends the sailors deserved a song of remembrance for them. He sat down and wrote this song. It raised the hair on the back of my neck when I stood in front of the Bell and memorial to the big ship. I punched a button and this song started to play. I tell you it brought cold chills.

They had a film and a narrator to answer questions. I asked her if Gordon Lightfoot ever visited the museum. She said he comes just about every year when the families of the Edmund Fitzgerald have a yearly reunion there. He is an Canadian Indian that lives across the border on the other side of Lake Superior. Has to be a good man to do this  kind of thing.

Hope the site works for you.
