This annual program remembering lost mariners of the Great Lakes will be highlighted by Michael Schumacher, author of numerous historical books, including Mighty Fitz: The Sinking of the Edmund Fitzgerald, and the forthcoming November’s Fury, an account of the Great Storm of 1913. His presentation will focus on the worst maritime disaster to ever hit the Great Lakes, during which over a dozen large freighters foundered and over 200 lives were lost.

A lantern vigil at the Edmund Fitzgerald anchor begins the night, followed by a performance by Lee Murdock, Great Lakes balladeer, and an Honor Guard escort of the memorial wreath to the Detroit River for receipt by the Honor Flotilla of Great Lakes vessels.

Seating is limited, and advance registration is requested.  Please call (313) 833-1801 for more information or to register.

Special thanks to the Canadian Shipowners Association and the Lake Carriers Association for co-sponsoring this event.
