Program – Jerry S. told us all about the sub H. L. Hunly It was launched in 1863 and had a crew of 8. It was 40′ long. 1st attempt to use it 5 died. 2nd attempt 8 died. 3rd attempt it used a spar pole system to sink other ships, but it sunk with 8 dead.

He also told us about the iron clads. In 1861 James Eads was contacted to design an iron clad with 4″ steel plates to protect the sides. It was steam powered and had a crew of 320. It was rnamed the CSS Virginia and was blown up to keep from the Union from getting it. The Monitor was 179′ with a crew of 49, but it was on its way back north and sunk in a storm. Very good information program
