The Confederate submarine Hunley, the first submarine to ever sink an enemy warship, has fascinated us ever since its
mysterious disappearance in 1864. Movies have been made dramatizing its almost suicidal nature and its tragic end.
Myths and legends have grown up about it. The Hunley was re-discovered in 1995 off Charleston Harbor, and rescued
from the bottom of the sea, to sit today in a museum in Charleston. Yet over a decade after its rescue, questions
still linger about the submarine, how it operated, why it was lost, what happened to the crew. In this presentation,
Professor Allardice will relate the latest discoveries, discoveries that answer at least some of the mysteries
surrounding the vessel.
