I found it interesting to read more about the Sultana disaster on my email I get from Fold3. Fold3 is an organization which provides historical documents (annual fee) that have been created since the Colonial times of North America. I have found it a valuable research resource.

You can read my Trails & Rails blog post on this incident along with a little of how it relates to a work-in-progress that I have titled Abilene Gamble by clicking HERE.
