Beneath the majestic waters of Michigan’s most prized natural resources lies a graveyard storied with bravery and travel. The Great Lakes contains an estimated 6,000 shipwrecks, spanning as far back as the 1670s all the way up to the famed sinking of The Edmund Fitzgerald in 1975. Sean Ley of the Great Lakes Shipwreck Historical Society said while tragic, the disasters out on the Lakes should continue to be studied to avoid future disasters and to remember the lifesaving efforts of emergency responders.
