Apparently the people of the Eastern U.S. ( and Homeland Security) still fear the Hunley.

I felt quite honoured to be in the re-patriation of the last Hunley crew.

Thanx Ed.
The neat part about that was - I was INVITED to be there. 6 men from the home re-enacting unit were to escort the caissons with each sailor.
That left 6 holes in the ranks that had to be filled. WE-of all the people that could've been asked (& would've KILLED for the opportunity)-were asked.
Immediatly behind the last caisson, was the "home" unit..then the colour party, then the rest of the procession.
It was a spectacle I was proud to have been associated with.
The recovery of the Hunley (& its last crew) put alot of myths(&ideas) to rest.

...& I SHOULD add, they finally got the respect & resting place (in Magnolia Cemetary) they deserved!
Identifying the remains did bring up some new mysteries, tho.
Like: Just WHO were these guys, & how were they recruited so secretley?
They know their I.D., but not alot else.
: One (or two) had been listed in the ANV as DESERTERS..yet show up in the Hunley?!

God grant them peace.

Author Clive Cussler was instrumental in the discovery of the Hunley and has a good write up on his NUMA website.

The Feds gave up on the hunt for it, but the state didn't. When it was found, the Feds sued the state to get it!
As far as I know, that battle STILL goes on.
Its the ONLY sub I've ever heard of that sank THREE TIMES!!

there were dead in all three sinkings as the remains of the third crew rest near the first two , why does the feds want it ? for the smithsonian ?
 
it was interesting in my reading from that great link i learned it was a german sub in the first world war that finally sank the second ship in combat , near fifty years later , way ahead of its time

The Federial Goverment clains all items owned by the CSA. One issue the Hunley was a privateer, not CSA Government owned.

Yes, there were dead in all 3 sinkings...but the first didn't take all the crew.
