1. what is the history of this Sultana, do you know?

A ship (not a tall ship) named Sultana was important in Civil War history. Loaded with nearly 2,000 Union soldiers who had been released from Andersonville prison, it exploded in Arkansas. It was a steamer, and it blew up. Most everyone died. I have a historic pphoto taken the day before it blew up.

2. I don't know,

didn't even know of the current events, and unfortunately, was unaware of the history you discuss.
