Summary: On the night of February 17, 1864, the tiny Confederate submarine HL Hunley made its way toward the USS Housatonic just outside Charleston harbor. The Union ship's stern was blown open, but the Hunley disappeared without a trace. For 131 years the eight-man crew of the HL Hunley lay in their watery graves; when raised, the narrow metal vessel revealed no indication the blast had breached the hull, and all eight men were still seated at their stations. Lance spent three years in a quest to discover why it sank, and to uncover its secrets. -- adapted from jacket
