On This Date in Minnesota History: November 10

November 10, 1975 — “The Edmund Fitzgerald, en route from Duluth to the steel mill on Zug Island, near Detroit, Mich., with a full cargo of taconite, sinks during a massive winter storm on Lake Superior. All 29 aboard are lost.”

Thank you Gordon Lightfoot for forever reminding us of this tragedy.
