She was a sidewheel steamboat plying the Mississippi from St Louis to New Orleans, designed for 346 passengers and 86 crew but on April 21, 1865 she was loaded with 2000 people, mostly Union soldiers recently released from Confederate POW camps. At 2AM, three boilers exploded, the ship caught fire and rapidly sank killing 1600 of the 2100 passengers and crew. Poor maintenance and repair work was the cause.
