Wisconsin Shipwrecks

Leave the modern world behind, and visit Wisconsin when schooners and steamers ruled the Great Lakes. By studying shipwrecks, one develops an appreciation for the critical role these vessels played in the development of the region and a respect for the men and women that worked the lakes. There is no other way to get so close to history.
