Not named until after the tragic death on board of its benefactor the HL Hunley went on to be the first successful submarine attack in history. Its first was unfortunately also its last. Lost until its discovery in a watery grave off SC in 1996, it has been under the microscope since it was raised. It has stubbornly clung to many of its secrets for 18 years.
Since 2000 living historian Steve Quick has told the story across the upper Midwest to schools, libraries, museums, round tables and historical events. Relocating to SC he now brings this one of a kind story home. Part history, part technology, part mystery there is something in this compelling story for everyone.
