The Sultana Memorial at Mt. Olive

We pondered where to go next. The subject of Ft. Dickerson was still fresh so we headed over to see the Sultana memorial at Mt. Olive.

I have a distant relative, Moses Gamble, who was killed when the Sultana Riverboat exploded. He had lived through the Civil War only to die on his journey home.

You can read more about that explosion Here.

There are names on all sides of the monument. Moses was a private with Company A, 3rd Tennessee Cavalry Volunteers.

    I am sure having found your relative’s name there made it more meaningful.
