|Fort Sumter from Fort Moultrie|
|Gun at Fort Sumter|
Before returning home we stopped by the H. L. Hunley. The Hunley was the first submarine to sink a ship, and was built during the Civil War by the Confederates to break the Union blockade. It sank on the way back to shore after its successful attack, and the cause is unknown to this day. A few years ago the wreck was discovered and raised along with many artifacts. Unfortunately we were not able to see the actual ship, but we hope to at a later time.
