dc.description.abstractThe shipwreck and maritime history of the Illinois region of Lake Michigan was one wrought with tragedy and shaped the laws of the shipping industry for the future. What has become known as the ‘Shipwreck Era’ of 1825-1925 hosts the most well-known tragedies of Lake Michigan. Ships such as the Lady Elgin, Eastland, and Rouse Simmons rest as the focal points of most research due to the tragic yet popular nature of their respective disasters. A qualitative analysis into the archival documents at Newberry Library, Manitowoc Maritime Museum and the Winnetka Historical Society along the western lakeshore, explorations of individual shipwrecks are able to be compiled into a digital exhibit and foundation of a boat tour to fully explore the wreckage that remains at the bottom of the lake.
