PLHS Mock Trial team to compete in regional finals Friday
On Nov. 10, 1975, the S.S. Edmund Fitzgerald left port from Superior, Wis. The ship, loaded with taconite, pulled out of port with clear weather.
Unfortunately, later in its travels, the Fitzgerald was hit by a horrendous storm. This storm became increasingly worse as rising wind and waves pushed over the stern of the ship. The last message heard over the radio from the captain was, “We’re holding our own.”
