Charleston, SC~~Headstone of the graves of the second crew of the H.L. Hunley submarine including Horace L. Hunley. On October 15, 1863, though he was not part of the crew, Hunley decided to take command during a routine exercise. The vessel sank and all eight crew members were killed, including Hunley himself.
Confederate Civil War vessel H.L. Hunley, the world's first successful combat submarine, was unveiled in full and unobstructed for the first time in North Charleston, S.C.
For the first time since the U.S. Civil War, the Confederate vessel H.L. Hunley—the world's first submarine to sink an enemy ship—was revealed on January 12 (pictured) after 11 years of conservation work. Shown in a South Carolina conservation facility, the Hunley sank the U.S.S. Housatonic off Charleston (map) in 1864. Within minutes the sub itself sank too-killing its eight-man crew and creating an enduring mystery.
A new view of the Civil War submarine the H.L. Hunley after the truss that used to house the sub has been removed Thursday January 12, 2012. The truss was fabricated to lift the Hunley from the Charleston Harbor in 2000 and has provided the housing for the Civil War submarine since. (Grace Beahm/...)
