In 1995, famous explorer, Clive Cussler, found the very first American submarine that conducted a successful attack on a naval vessel during war. The H.L. Hunley’s success would not be replicated until WWI. The Hunley sank at about the time of the attack for reasons not definitely known. It is now speculated that the shock wave from the explosion damaged the sub’s structural integrity and injured the crew causing it to be lost. Not widely known is that the crew that went down with the Hunley after its attack on the USS Housatonic was the third crew to be lost. What happened to the other two crews and where were they buried? If you enjoy battlefield archeology this program solves the mystery of the previous Hunley crew that was “lost” for forty-five years.
