Why did the first submarine to sink an enemy ship vanish after accomplishing her mission, and what ever happened to her crew? Despite decades of intensive searching, the Civil War submarine H.L. Hunley remained hidden on the ocean floor for more than 130 years, leaving generations mystified, curious and determined to find her. The discovery, in 1995, set in motion a recovery mission that many called a miracle. The process of raising the submarine from the seafloor and transporting it to a laboratory gave the people who had spent decades wondering about the Hitnley’s mysterious disappearance the answers they were all looking for.
