Originally published in 1892, this once rare and newly repinted book was the subject of David Madden's Rediscovering Civil War Classics column in the Summer 2001 issue of the Civil War Book Review. Berry collected and edited the personal narratives of those who survived the Sultana's explosion, and in his new Foreword, Madden reflects on how and why the tragedy that took over 1,700 lives (roughly 200 more than the Titanic) has scarcely remained in American memory.
