Edmund Fitzgerald sank 36 years ago on November 10th, 1975 in Lake Superior. All 29 crew members lost their lives that day. I had created this Google Maps Mashup in 2009 which shows the exact location of the tragedy in Lake Superior along with hometowns of the mariners on Edmund Fitzgerald who died.

When the map first loads up it shows the location where the ship sank along with a video of the song from Gordon Lightfoot which is dedicated to Edmund Fitzgerald. There is a link above the video (“Click here for mariners hometown”) which when clicked shows the hometowns of mariners hometown. The information window above the mariner markers has a forward and back arrows which when clicked takes you to the next mariner location.
