  • From release

    Had pioneering submariners on the Hunley released the vessel’s keel blocks, the crew might have survived their first Civil War mission. 

    On Feb. 17, 1864, the Hunley became the world’s first successful combat submarine, sinking the U.S.S. Housatonic. 

    Historical records indicate the submarine’s crew signaled to shore they were on the way back home, but instead they vanished without a trace.
