Did you know that submarines were used during the Civil War? The H.L. Hunley was the first of its kind to engage and sink a warship. Made from an iron steam boiler, the ship was sunk during battle in Charleston Harbor in 1864. The Hunley was raised from the harbor floor in August of 2000. While more than half a million people have seen the Hunley since then at the Warren Lasch Conservation Center in North Charleston, South Carolina, this is the first time the ship is fully visible to the public.
