Final Voyage


"The schooner Free Democrat was driven onto a boulder on the east side of Bailey's Harbor one day last week, and a big hole knocked in her bottom which caused her to sink. The vessel was loaded with wood, owned by F. Whitman, about sixty cords of this proving a total loss. The Free Democrat was one of the oldest vessels afloat on the lakes..." --From the Wisconsin Historical Society Maritime Preservation and Archaeology Files
