The Maritime History of the Great Lakes
Denmark (Brig), aground, 1856

Full Text

The impression among our shippers yesterday, says the Chicago Press, of Tuesday, was that the Straits are open. This was strengthened by the report of the Captain of the VINCENNES, which arrived from Manistee in the afternoon, that the brig DENMARK, which went ashore at Green Bay last fall, was seen floating out in the lake. The ice in the Bay and the Straits generally give way about the same time. If they are open however, we will very soon have reliable intelligence of the fact. The tug SALVOR went out in the afternoon to rescue the DENMARK.

      SCHOONER DENMARK. - This vessel, which was frozen up in the northern part of this lake all winter, and has been drifting about without a crew ever since the ice broke up around her, was picked up and towed into Milwaukee, by the schooner PALAROPE. - Chicago Tribune, 2nd.
