It’s 150 years ago today since the CSS Hunley sank the USS Housatonic off the Charleston Harbour in 1864. It was the first submarine to sink a ship in the history of the world. The CSS Hunley was constructed at the Park & Lyons Machine Shop in Mobile, from whence it was shipped to South Carolina. There, it made history and pioneered the future.
Amazingly, some ‘news’ outlets aren’t covering the historic occasion. On those that do, anti-Southern commenters berate giving the Hunley any glory time. Some say this only “reminds the South” of this and that.
Utterly amazing. The Hunley displays just what an independent South is capable of producing. And it continues to scare Yankees to this day.
