Question: What Is The Hunley Submarine?



Answer: The Hunley is a Confederate submarine that was discovered in 1995. The 2007 Cussler Convention was centered on the Hunley. We visited the restoration facility in Charleston and saw the Hunley Museum that does a wonderful job of telling the history of the first submarine used in naval combat. We walked through the museum with Dirk Cussler, Clive’s son, who added context to what we saw. Back at our meeting Ralph Wilbanks, the NUMA diver who found the Hunley, he shared the story of how they discovered it.
