There are several thousand shipwrecks in the Great Lakes. The Great Lakes Shipwreck Museum uses the approximate figures of 6,000 ships and 30,000 lives lost. David D. Swayze has compiled a list which details over 4,750 well-documented shipwrecks, mostly of commercial vessels and a list of known names of over 5,000 victims of those sinkings. A three volume work by Georgann and Mike Wachter, Erie Wrecks East (2nd Ed.), Erie Wrecks West, and Erie Wrecks & Lights, identifies 110, 103, and 45 wreck locations respectively. In History of Great Lakes, J.B. Mansfield documented 5,999 shipwrecks occurring between 1878 and 1897. Nearly one quarter of these shipwrecks were listed as total losses and a total of 1,166 lives were lost in this 20-year period. Historian and mariner Mark Thompson estimated the total number of casualties over more than 300 years of Great Lakes shipping is likely more than 25,000. In the period between 1816 when the Invincible was lost to the sinking of the Fitzgerald in 1975, the Whitefish Point area has claimed at least 240 ships.
