The Hunley | Charleston SC
The H.L Hunley became the first combat submarine to sink a warship on the fateful night of February 17, 1864. That night, it sank the USS Housatonic, a steam-powered Union sloop of war in Charleston Harbor. While it was victorious, the Hunley never resurfaced, taking her crew of eight men to an early grave. What happened to the H.L. Hunley and her crew is an ongoing maritime mystery.
