H.L. Hunley Traveling Exhibit

Welcome

Bring Living History to your event!  One of the most tragic events of American History is often overlooked and forgotten, but for seven young men and their commanding officer history was made in a night of glory and sacrifice.  For the first time in history a submarine was used as a military means to attack and sink a hostile vessel from beneath the surface of the ocean.  On the night of February 17, 1864, the Confederate submarine H.L. Hunley became the first submarine in history to sink an enemy ship, a sloop-of-war, the U.S.S Housatonic.
