With their incredible expertise and experience, John Chatterton and the other Detectives bring tales to the surface that have been submerged for generations.
More than a thousand ships competed for business on the Great Lakes in the 1870's, but only one was foolhardy enough to take on a late season run from Milwaukee to Buffalo on November 27th, 1875. The Cornelia B. Windigate lost her bet against nature, and her wreck lay undisturbed for over a century. But when it was found, it raised countless questions: there was no sign of distress; no remains of the crew and no clue as to what destroyed her. But strangest of all, the ship was not in Lake Michigan, where it had been presumed lost! Join the DEEP SEA DETECTIVES as they descend to this pristine wreck in search of answers to one of the Great Lakes' most puzzling mysteries.
