NatGeo: HL Hunley, Secret Weapon of the Confederacy

In February 1865 the Confederacy launched the HL Hunley submarine; a small event in the scope of the Civil War, but a large step forward in Naval warfare as this was the first known submarine attack. On that fateful evening, the Hunley sank the Union ship, Housatonic. The Hunley was lost and her crew of eight perished. The mystery of the Hunley has remained a mystery until now. See how HP White helped researches and NatGeo unravel what may have happened to the Hunley on her maiden voyage.
