The history of the Confederate submarine H. L. Hunley  is as astonishing as its disappearance and subsequent recovery.  On February 17, 1864, after a legendary encounter with a Union battleship, the iron "fish-boat" vanished without a trace somewhere off the coast of South Carolina.  For more than a century the fate of the Hunley remained one of the great unsolved mysteries of the Civil War.  Then, on August 8, 2000, with thousands of spectators crowding Charleston Harbor, the Hunley was raised from the bottom of the sea and towed ashore.  Now, award winning journalists Brian Hicks and Schuyler Kropf offer new insights into the Hunley's final hours and recount the amazing true story of its rescue.  

Dramatically told, filled with historical details and contemporary color, illustrated with breathtaking original photographs, Raising the Hunley is a spellbinding narrative-and one of the most fascinating Civil War books to appear in years.
