    Civil War Confederate Submarine Finally Revealed

    The world got an unobstructed view of the Confederate submarine H.L. Hunley for the first time since the Civil War on Thursday as a massive steel truss that had surrounded the first sub in history to sink an enemy warship was finally removed.
    The truss weighing more than 8 tons had shrouded the sub since it was raised off the coast of South Carolina almost a dozen years ago.

    Very interesting. 150 years underwater....now that is some good steel. Not sure some of the things they make today out of steel would be that preserved.

    in the mean time a child a few hundred miles away in Appalachia goes to bed without a decent dinner, again....
    Some people are like a Slinky, not really good for anything but they do make you smile when you push them down stairs.

    I've been following the Hunley story for a while. Cool to finally see some great pictures.

    I once saved a man in Wichita just to watch him dive...(inventor)
