The Maritime History of the Great Lakes
Empire State (Propeller), U7229, aground, 1 Jul 1891


Description
Full Text

The only other accident attended by heavy loss during the week was the stranding of the Buffalo steamer EMPIRE STATE on Sable reef, Lake Superior. Her release was costly and she is badly damaged. The officers and crew of the boat had a very rough experience in effecting her release, on account of strong northwest wind prevailing for days and difficulties in obtaining assistance.
