News Flash

Salvage crews using an elaborate truss carefully loosed the U.S. Civil War submarine H.L. Hunley from its resting place near Charleston Harbor and brought it to the surface for the first time in 136 years. The craft was submerged under about 30 feet of water, approximately four miles off Sullivan's Island, South Carolina.There is a possibility the bodies of the sub's nine-man crew, and their possessions, are still inside the submarine.
