SS Edmund Fitzgerald was an American Great Lakes freighter that sank in a Lake Superior storm on November 10, 1975, with the loss of the entire crew of 29. 

The ship got lost in a storm on November 10, 1975.

Two separate areas of high wind appeared over Lake Superior at 4:00 p.m. on November 10.

A group of three rogue waves, often called "three sisters," was reported in the vicinity of Fitzgerald at the time she sank.

Gordon Lightfoot made it the subject of his 1976 hit song "The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald".
