MARQUETTE –Marquette Maritime Museum’s Maritime History on Tap Virtual presents Dan Fountain’s Wreck and Rescue: the Loss of the AA Parker at 7 p.m. Tuesday via Zoom.

On Sept. 19, 1903, the A.A. Parker ran into a fierce Lake Superior gale and foundered four miles north of Grand Marais. The Life-Saving Service (with a little help) rescued all 17 crew members and two dogs before the Parker sank bow first.

Join in for Dan Fountain’s virtual program on the A.A. Parker, discovered in 2001 by the Great Lakes Historical Shipwreck Society. Tickets are $5 and available on the museum’s Facebook page or at https://marquette-maritime-museum.square.site/.

This program is sponsored in part by grants from WE Energies Foundation, The National Endowment for the Arts, and the Michigan Council for Arts and Cultural Affairs.
