Hunley struck the USS Housatonic (a Union Navy ship just outside of Charleston's harbor about 4 miles off of Sullivan's Island) below the waterline, thrusting her long metal spar into the stern area of the Housatonic. The Housatonic exploded & consequently sank. The Hunley disappeared for 137 years & was recovered on August 8, 2000. She was found buried in the Atlantic Ocean, just outside of Charleston Harbor. The Hunley, in her entirety, can be viewed at the Warren Lasch Conservation Center in North Charleston.
