Your web site is very interesting. At least the Hunley crew wasn't encroached on by modern construction building material junk,like houses, buildings, etc. They were safe from this travisty by being buried at sea. The Secessionville battlefeild around Fort Lamar on James Island south of Charleston has houses built over a possible mass Federal grave. Secessionville or Fort Lamar, known as the "tower battery" before the battle and named for Confederate Colonel Lamar after a Confederate victory. Seven thousand federal troops were repulsed at the tower battery by a couple hundred Confederates that were reinforced by approxamatly 300 more Confederates. There was hand to hand fighting as the Federals got inside the earth built fort and were repulsed by a small but determined Confederate garison. Much of this battlefeild site has been lost to developers and the possible building over grave sites remains a real concern.

The Hunley is an amazing story...it leaves me filled with astonishment and wonder at the brilliance of these Confedorate men. I recommend the book "Raising the Hunley" by Brian Hicks and Schuyler Krope....an excellent read. May God bless Lt. G. Dixion and all his men.

This site is the most consumming subject I have found on the internet period. I hope these submarine sailors of the Confederate Navy will be held in a place of high honor that they deserve, and buried in a military service under the confederate flag which they faithfully served. The gold coin being found, is like a age old legend comming full circle to reality. Great Job, by all concerned Lee Mathis, CW4, U.S. Army A Personal Comment: I hope that Anti-Confederate individuals or groups do not cause you good folks any problems or try to RE-WRITE the history you have discovered.

Thank you for all that you are doing to reveal the true history of the Confederate soldier and sailor at a time when so much publicity is being spread about those American heroes of the 1860s. I am a Confederate Naval re enactor, a Past Commander of three SCV Camps in two states, a Past Brigade Commander and a present Division Adjutant of the Sons of Confederate Veterans; therefore, you can imagine what my beliefs are towards our Southron heroes.

I have followed the story of the Hunley since I joined the US NAvy Sub Service in 1965. Having been stationed in Charleston from 1966-69 aboard the SSBN Nathaneal Greene SSBN-636, we probably sailed over the site where the Hunley rested. As a member of the brotherhood of submarine sailors, thank you for finding the Hunley and your reverent examination of her and the valiant sailors on board. Very Best Regards, Gregory S.

Just finished book "RAISING THE HUNLEY" which inspired me to look for a Hunley site. Yours is great. I'm a native Pennsylvia "damyamkee" but I salute all those brave soldiers of the Confederacy, & especially the 3 Hunley crews. Frankly I think you in the south should be able to fly the Confederate flag any time & anywhere you damned well choose. To bloody hell with political correctness. Respect is what flags are all about & nobody has a corner on it! Didn't know there was a Hunley movie. Gonna run right out & rent it. I was stationed in the south during WW2 & was treated royally. You're my kind of people. Fly it high & proud!!! L.E.Stanton, upper NY

My best friend and I are Civil War reinactors (from the Midwest), and we have been checking out your website since it began, and find it facinating. We find Eastern Theatre battles the most interesting, and often cross over and portray Confederate soldiers. So ever since we first heard about the Hunley, we have been hooked; and have seen every TV documentary, and read everything we could put our hands on, but still feel your website is by far the most informative and most up to date on the subject. We will continue to check out your site, and hope to attend the internment ceremonies when they occur (if the public will be allowed to attend). Your website is great, and thanks for all the hours of facination!!! ReagNn@aol.com

I was quite surprised to see that Mr. Lasch also had a connection with the first submersible cruise ship, the Golden Marlin, in his job as CEO of Blue Seas Cruise Lines..... that is if you can believe Clive Cussler in his novel, Valhalla Rising. I know there are many famous ex-Clevelanders, but Mr. Lasch is really doing us proud !!

upon returning from my first trip to Charleston I was very intruiged by the H.L. Hunley. I scrambled to my computer to see what else I could learn of the brave souls on board and their present disposition. I finally found what I was looking for on your site. the site is very well done and informative. I was not able to observe the Hunley "in state" at the conservatory but have gratefully learned what I was so curious to know. thank you I will return here often. your efforts are valuable to this history in progress.

As a kid growing up in southern California I have always loved the sea.While others surfed(I did sometimes)I was more interested in down-below.The Hunley was and still is my main interest.I have just read about it in Clive Cussler's "The Sea Hunters".I still have much respect for those who tried and those who tried and succeeded and died.I am still amazed at their bravery in the face of new technology and ignorance of decompression tables etc.Your website is the best so far.Had I lived in those days,you would have found my bones inside the Hunley.Keep up the good work!

This is a great site! I am currently researching the descendents of the Hunley, the five submarines built here in Shreveport, La., by the Singer Submarine Corps (from Port Lavaca, Texas. They also assisted in construction of the Hunley), in 1864. From reports, the Shreveport subs had one turret, mounted mid-ship, but were nearly identical to the Hunley in appearance. Five were built here, in the Confederate Naval Shipyard, located where Cross Bayou joins the Red River (also the building site of the ironclad Missouri). One was shipped to Houston, and the remaining four served on the Red River, until they were scuttled there before the end of the war. Rumor has it that one of the subs has now been located, but funds are lacking to raise it. Fascinating stuff!! I've signed up for the newsletter. Looking forward to the updates. Steve R. Smith

Nice website. People should be cautious and not refer to the Hunley as the first submarine to sink an "enemy" ship. The Housatonic was a U.S. Navy ship so anyone referring it as an "enemy" vessel is in the same boat as Saddam Hussein, Adolf Hitler, and Joseph Stalin. It's more proper to refer to the Hunley as the first submarine to sink a ship or to sink a ship during war. We Southerners should be cautious because if we sling mud, others can sling mud and refer to the attack on Fort Sumter as similar to the attack on the World Trade Center. It's better to remember the war but not to keep fighting it. Those that were bitter moved to Brazil after the war and started a confederate outpost that still remains today for tourists. Sam

On a recent trip to Freedom, Oklahoma, with a population including rural areas at about 350, discussion of The Hunley was brought up by a relative born and raised in that state. They didn't know that Cussler did not find The Hunley until I related to them about meeting Lee Spence just after Hurricane Hugo. When I asked Mr. Spence what was the most significant ship that he has ever located he told me "The Hunley." My surprise resulted in my doubtfully asking "Where?" kind of like "yeah right." He told me along with some physical details then contrary to history but now confirmed by The Hunley being raised and studied. Remember how they had to cut off the iron spar, that would not of been necessary if they would of listened to Mr. Spence.......Floyd

I have been following the story of the Hunley ever since it was found. My family tree is Boston "yankees" but have a relative buried in Andersonville National Cemetery. History is great. Looking forward to the Hunley visit this November. The men of the Hunley gave their lives for a belief. They are true heroes as are mine.

Great website! Thanks for all your hardwork in bringing the news of the hunley home to us. The yamndankee ship our Hunley submarine sunk was in fact an ENEMY ship. They were enemy's to our heritage and way of life. They tried to kill us all and didn't succeed and it shows in the building of the Hunley that we weren't ignorant and we sure weren't going to stand by and do nothing. HOOORRAAAAYYY! to the hero's of the Hunley and may God raise up more lovers of freedom and DIXIE. DEO VINDICE

Great website, super newsletter. I read Melissa N's thoughtful comments with interest, and appreciated you-alls reply. I was struck by these thoughts: the items in Lt Dixon's pockets were the things that he wanted to have with him if he died, which he must have known was a possbility given Hunley's history, and his personal experience with the elephant at Shiloh and elsewhere. I thought about my personal experiences and observations when faced with similar circumstances as a US Marine, and it occured to me that perhaps the most fitting fate for the pinky ring, gold coin and brooch might be with the remains of Lt Davis when ultimately re-interred. Perhaps an extensive laser or other mapping could allow reproduction to pains-taking accuracy, but shouldn't those things with which Lt Davis chose to have at his final moment stay with him ? I offer this only for discussion, and would like to hear other thoughts. I believe the work being done on Hunley to be historic in itself, and exceptionally valuable to this and future generations. I am a former Charlestonian, College of Charleston graduate, and history buff, too ! R/tgr

I always read the "Hunley " newsletters with great interest , however it amazes me to see how the discovery of a military artifact 100 + years later can lift the lid on so many OLD wounds . In the Fall of 99 I visited the Confederate Museum - Richmond Va . And while there noticed several folks in tears while viewing the exhibits. I asked one woman - why the tears ? She replied ,that her Great Grand Daddy had been killed during the Civil War .Her Great Grand Ma mourned his death till her own passing . The story of this man had been passed down through the generations and she felt that out of respect for her long passed relative she should visit the Museum . She said , to me with gallons of flowing tears she did not EVER expect to ," go to pieces " ! . She found the reality of seeing the exibits 1st hand brought all of her families PAIN right up to the surface .Even after 100 + years . My view is the Hunley and it,s crew were lost in one of modern histories most bloody battle , a long , hard , bloody war killing more men then all the wars of the 20th century combined . Having met WW2 veterans on both sides , folks should to drop the politically correct view of the Civil War . And simply focus on the fact - right or wrong , the Hunley crew members were doing there job , fighting a war under orders and nothing more . The victims of war are indeed the dead ,however the death of a soldier for any cause has a long lasting legacy . Lest we forget !!! . So when the time is right , let us bury our dead with the honour and respect they deserve as military men - simply following orders !!! Let,s not kill them all over again . And let us all pray that we get through this current world crisis in one piece . A-men !!

I had submarine duty in 1968 so I've been very interested since I heard about the finding of the Hunley. I have a Confederate belt buckel which I found with a metal detector. After I heard of the discovery in 95, I rented a VHS tape called the Hunley. The movie tells about a boy who lied about his age and didn't have to be there, who volunteered to go, is this true?? I enjoy your web site, you have a lot to offer the public. Thank You..

My husband & I went to see the confederate submarine the H.L.Hunley at the Warren Lasch Conservation Lab and it was quiet a touching experience to see it and listen to the confederate dressed volunteers who make you feel like you take this in your heart as an unforgettable honor to have been able to be there. We love your email updates and the latest on the possibilities of where the H.L.Hunley may one day be displayed. The Charleston Harbor sounds wonderful. I can just picture it there. Thanks for all the information your site provides...
