About this Audiobook

With this History Highlights series online audiobook, you will discover the dramatic story of the worst marine accident in United States history. When the steamboat Sultana exploded in the Mississippi River in April of 1865, more than 1,700 people perished. The tale is made even more heartbreaking considering that most were Union prisoners of war, finally released from the horrors of Confederate prisons and on their way home. This relatively-unknown event is often lost in the pages of Civil War history. The story of how this event happened, although heartbreaking, is also significant and fascinating.

My name is Bill Wiemuth and I am excited to share with you this amazing story. You will discover the fascinating people, remarkable events, and dramatic impact. A love of history grows into a thrilling passion. So, get ready to fall in love with history again or for the first time. Experience wonder. Revel in these incredible tales of remarkable people and events that shaped the United States.

Get ready for a journey of discovery.
