Find a memorial to the Sultana steamer ship, which tragically sank in April 1865 on the Mississippi River. Of the 1,547 people that died, 365 were from this area. The disaster killed more crew and passengers than the Titanic, but received minimal press; it happened soon after the assassination of President Abraham Lincoln and during the closing weeks of the Civil War.
