Due to a scheduling mixup, our previously scheduled speaker, Kenneth Clarke, won’t be able to make it this month. We’ve chosen to present a video, The Sultana Disaster. This is a video presentation of a program given by author Gene Eric Salecker. The disaster occurred on the Mississippi River at the close of the American Civil War. Mr. Salecker will present the known facts and probable details in this well researched program. There is monument in the Cuyahoga Falls Oakwood Cemetery to those from the area who were lost in the event.

Gene Eric Salecker is the author of the book Disaster on the Mississippi: the Sultana Explosion. He has appeared on the History Channel and PBS.
