Lost Mariners Remembrance

Lake Erie’s very own Perfect Storm hit on October 20, 1916. Through the course of the day and night, four commercial vessels were lost to their watery graves, taking more than 50 sailors with them. Join Carrie Sowden, Archaeological Director of the National Museum of the Great Lakes, as we discuss each ship, their history, and what happened as they went down – all across Lake Erie. The stories of the D.L Filer, James B Colgate, Merida, and Marshall Butters are as different as can be. We will honor the sailors and their vessels.
