After the Great Lakes Shipwreck Historical Society released the discovery of the shipwreck Atlanta in March of 2022, we found this letter in an old United States Life-Saving Service log from one of the survivors “Eli Wait”… Sailor Wait penned this 2 days after the life-saving service saved his life…5 out of 7 of his shipmates drowned on May 4 1891…this is his letter.
