MN Reads: "The Trial of the Edmund Fitzgerald" edited by Michael Schumacher

Nov 7, 2019

A forgotten grocery-store box simply labeled "Fitz" was the genesis for Michael Schumacher's The Trial of the Edmund Fitzgerald: Eyewitness Accounts from the U.S. Coast Guard Hearings.

The box contained literal reams of photocopied testimony, more than 3,000 pages of documentation from the Coast Guard's reports and official inquiry into the tragedy of November 10, 1975.

The Trial of the Edmund Fitzgerald: Eyewitness Accounts from the U.S. Coast Guard Hearings is published by the University of Minnesota Press.
