Conservators for the HS Hunley, a hand-cranked Confederate sub, will begin turning the sub upright after keeping it in a conservation tank for a decade after it was pulled from the sea near Charleston SC.

The sub is the first to sink an enemy ship....sank a Union sub. Staff hope to find more about why the sub sank in 1864 during the Civil War.

I once served 6-months at the subase museum in Groton and was able to go through their archive reading everything they had on the David series of subs that had been manufactured and deployed from SC. I found the subject very interesting. They have a number of interviews from former crewman of the Davids [done after the war of unprovoked Northern Aggression], only one photograph of a David survived the burning of the city.

I was on the USS Casimir Pulaski, homeported in Charleston SC, during her last year homeported in SC. It was while they were in the process of moving all subs away from SC and shutting down the base. I was very interested in the history of subs in that area. But no one else among the crew saw any interest in the topic.
