  1. Over 100 years ago, every year for twenty years, the schooner Rouse Simmons carried a cargo of Christmas trees down Lake Michigan from the northern forests to Chicago. She tied up in the Chicago River and the crew sold the trees from her decks. On November 23, 1912, she sank with all hands in a storm off the Wisconsin coast. Today, the Coast Guard Cutter Mackinaw carries trees to Chicago for donation to underprivileged families. I attended the very cold memorial ceremony today at the Mackinaw's berth.
