Ships of the Great Lakes

Great Ships
This documentary presents a rare opportunity to experience a journey on board a 1000-foot freighter across North America's Great Lakes. We learn the history of shipping over these huge bodies of water, sail through the Soo Locks, tour the Maritime Academy and view other important landmarks; then we dive to view the wreck of the doomed Edmund Fitzgerald and hear Coast Guard recordings as the story of her sinking unfolds.
