The PS Lady Elgin was a wooden-hulled sidewheel steamship that sank in Lake Michigan off Highwood, Illinois after she was rammed in a gale by the schooner Augusta in the early hours of September 8, 1860. The passenger manifest was lost with the collision, but the sinking of the Lady Elgin resulted in the loss of about 300 lives in what was called "one of the greatest marine horrors on record." Four years after the disaster, a new rule required sailing vessels to carry running lights. The Lady Elgin disaster remains the greatest loss of life on open water in the history of the Great Lakes.

  • Die Lady Elgin war ein amerikanischer Raddampfer, der zwischen 1851 und 1860 Passagiere und Fracht auf den Großen Seen zwischen Chicago, Buffalo, Bayfield und Collingwood beförderte. Sie galt als Favorit unter der zahlenden Kundschaft und wurde auch „Die Königin der Großen Seen“ genannt. Am 8. September 1860 sank die Lady Elgin auf dem Michigansee bei Dunkelheit und schwerer See nach der Kollision mit dem Schoner Augusta. Bis zu 400 Menschen kamen durch das bis heute schwerste Schiffsunglück auf den Großen Seen ums Leben. Unter den Toten waren viele Deutsche und Iren. 1999 wurde das Wrack der Lady Elgin in das National Register of Historic Places aufgenommen.
