Sinopsis: After more than a decade of research at the National Archives and other repositories in the South and Mid Atlantic, Mark Ragan has put together an exhaustive work on the CSS H. L. Hunley. The narrative begins in the small machine shop in Mobile, Alabama, where the Hunley was conceived. The last chapter includes a detailed account of the recovery and excavation of the vessel. Ragan s personal accounts of his research and related activity enhance the overall reading experience. It ends with the vessel's recovery from her century-old gravesite on the ocean floor and the return to land of her final crew.
This volume contains photographs and documents gathered from private and public archives around the United States and brings the reader up to date on the history of the vessel, as it has evolved since the publication of Mark Ragan's first book in 1995, The Hunley: Submarines, Sacrifice, & Success in the Civil War. The new work adds an index and includes expanded endnotes, increasing its value as reference tool.
Sinopsis: "The Hunley: Submarines, Sacrifice & Success in the Civil War" (revised edition) by Mark Ragan, 256 pages (8.5x11). This well-researched book is extremely timely, as the Confederate submarine H.L. Hunley, which lay off Sullivan's Island near Charleston, South Carolina, was raised recently from its watery grave. The Hunley was the first submarine in history to sink an enemy warship. It has additional documentation and illustrations not used in the first edition. Paperback only (1-886391-43-2) $19.95.
