About this event:
The H. L. Hunley was the first submarine to sink a ship in combat. The 40-foot long, hand-cranked submersible disappeared in 1864 after sinking a Union blockade vessel off the coast of Charleston. Discovered in 1995 and raised in 2000, the Hunley and the thousands of artifacts found within are undergoing conservation by Clemson University scientists. The Hunley is considered an artifact of global importance and is visited by tens of thousands of visitors a year.
