Must Reads on the Sultana Disaster

Recently in the midst of the Kickstarter campaign to fund the Sultana Documentary, Actor and Narrator Sean Astin made quite an impact by reading “The Sultana Tragedy: America’s Greatest Maritime Disaster” by Jerry O. Potter live and online in a 19 hour readathon.

This book along with “Disaster on the Mississippi: The Sultana Explosion, April 27th, 1865” by Gene Eric Salecker are essential reads on the Sultana so we thought we would post links to where you can find them online for purchase.

It goes without saying that Chester D. Berry’s “Loss of the Sultana and reminiscences of survivors” is one of the books everyone must read to get a first hand account of the survivors but also to get a window into the Civil War time period.
