Rotatin’ the H.L. Hunley Confederate Submarine

If you’re ever in Charleston, S.C., I encourage you to visit the H.L. Hunley Museum. This incredibly small submarine was used  during the Civil War and is considered to be The World’s First Successful Combat Submarine. To see it in person and realize that eight men were crammed in there and then to learn more about their unfortunate fate is a great history experience.
