Norman C. Shaw

2016 Community History Award

Norman C. Shaw received the Community History Award for promoting the region’s Civil War history. He was a founder of the Knoxville Civil War Roundtable (1983), and in 1987 founded the Association of Sultana Descendants and Friends to preserve the memory of the hundreds of Union prisoners of war who perished in the 1865 steamboat disaster. The 2016 Annual Sultana Reunion commemorated the 100th anniversary of the unveiling of the Sultana Monument at Mount Olive Cemetery.
