Summary Over 2000 Union soldiers, passengers and crew were crammed aboard the steamboat Sultana, licensed to carry 376. Graft, greed, overcrowding, a poorly maintained boat, and the Mississippi River was swollen with spring snowmelt conspired together to create a disaster. On April 27, 1865, the boat's boilers exploded, causing the worst maritime disaster in US history. This documentary features interviews with preeminent Sultana historians Jerry O. Potter and Gene Salecker, as well as descendants of the survivors.
