On February 17, 1864, the H.L. Hunley, a 40-foot-long Accomplice submarine, sank to the underside of the ocean off Charleston, South Carolina. The rationale why continues to be a thriller.
That day, the Hunley turned the primary submarine to sink an enemy ship throughout battle when it embedded a torpedo in the united statesHousatonic’s hull. After the torpedo detonated and sank the ship, the sub signaled to shore that its mission had been accomplished and began heading again to land…nevertheless it and the eight crew members aboard by no means returned. The sub sank to the ocean ground.
