Walter Day on “Raising the Hunley”

The H. L. Hunley is a Confederate Submarine that was lost and finally located, after 136 years, in the harbor of Charleston, SC. Walter Day was there when it was raised on August 8, 2000.

Many artifacts were found in the boat. Restoration began immediately and continues to this day.

This talk will give some details of the story, and is based on the book Raising the Hunley – The Remarkable History and Recovery of the Lost Confederate Submarine, by Brian Hicks and Schuyler Kropf.
