Well I have been promising we will go back to sea soon, and Sunday 5 August 2012 is the day. Sunday kicks off a series of articles on the Confederate submarine Hunley. I will give a short background into the Hunley and touch on three big controversies around the little submarine.

  1. Looking forward to hearing more about the Hunley. I first became aware of it during the 1999 movie and was incredulous at first (a submarine in the Civil War??!!). Have you seen the images of the forensic reconstructions they did on the crew’s faces?

    • I have not seen the movie, but I will.
      Also I have not decided if I want to see the reconstructions of the crew’s faces. I am still thinking about that. The first article will be some background and the first controversy of the Hunley.
