The church bell chimed ‘til it rang twenty-nine times for each man on the Edmund Fitzgerald.
This is the actual bell from the Fitzgerald, cut free from the wreckage and on display at the Great Lakes Shipwreck Museum. A replica bell with the names of the crew was put in its place. The survivors were quite pissed that the bell was polished and shined up…they had agreed to the removal and display, but had wanted it in the condition it was found.
A very somber museum, with the Gordon Lightfoot song on repeat.
