Expedition Hopes To Raise Submarine

The Hunley - named after New Orleans lawyer Horace Lawson Hunley, who financed it - became the first submarine to sink an enemy warship. But after signaling to shore, the sub also sank, coming to rest on the muddy bottom off Sullivans Island outside the harbor's mouth.

A dive team funded by author Clive Cussler found the Hunley in 1995, intact, save for some minor damage. Later this month, work begins to raise the sub from its watery grave.
