History worth remembering
17 July 2020 | by Bowserb46See all my reviews

I hope this feature documentary doesn't suffer the same fate as the Sultana disaster. Even during time of war, friends in government cover for incompetent and criminal activities. Indeed, President Lincoln himself had a part in the chain of events that lead to the disaster. And like today, the most culpable escaped prosecution or even charges, while one person got singled out to be the scapegoat.

The documentary itself was exceptionally well done. Remembrances by descendants of victims and survivors really helps to make this feel as real as it it. Kudos to Sean Astin for his narration.

The worst maritime disaster in American history, and at 73 I'm hearing about it for the first time. There is a lot to learn and know in this world.
