FOR THE LOVE OF A SHIP; THE SAD SAGA OF THE ALVIN CLARK
Launched in 1846 and lost in 1864, the Clark was discovered in 1967 on the dark and murky bottom of Lake Michigan. The ship was virtually a submerged time capsule, and was in perfect condition. Could the ship be raised and what would be the outcome?
The Alvin Clark became one of the most exciting and yet controversial shipwrecks in the Great Lakes. A haunting story from beginning to end, the odyssey of “The Mystery Ship from 19 Fathoms” will long be remembered.
