Sunday November 10, 1975 The Edmund Fitzgerald sank near White Fish Bay Of Lake Superior.

Then Nov. 11. Armistice Day, Veterans Day, or Remembrance Day. Please remember the fallen.

A co-worker was quite a history buff, and he somehow got the audio files of the Lake Superior Ship-to-shore radio telephone records that night. A North-West bound freighter did not want to turn-to and anchor in White Fish Bay. Saltwater Captain or master claiming that "it is only a lake." Large crashing sound pilot cancelled the pilot boat he had requested, as the Master had decided to turn-to after a wave blew out the bridge windshield glass.
