The Sultana disaster is the worst maritime disaster in American history.
The Sultana Descendants’ Association keeps alive the memories of the men and women who were lost.
The Sultana Descendants’ Association is always looking for new members: those whose ancestors were on the Sultana that fateful night or those who share a love of the Civil War and want to learn more about the story of the Sultana. Membership is free.
Check back soon for more information about the exciting things that have been happening! A Sultana Museum is under construction in Marion, Arkansas, and it will hold numerous artifacts and personal effects related to the Sultana. A temporary museum is now open.
A Sultana documentary is also set to be released to the public in May, 2015.
