The Hunley was shown for the first time to the public unobstructed. Read the story below. This is something I have to see!

I'll have to look at a trip to Charleston in the next couple of years.

Unfortunately I have not kept up with the findings. Have they announced the most likely cause for it sinking? Last I remember reading about was they were very excited about rotating it vertically so they could see the condition of the lower front hull thinking that might help explain what happened.

To the best of my knowledge, it seems that perhaps the main cause is either:
A: Concussion shock caused by the explosion which allowed leaking.
B: Once she gave the mission accomplished light, and went back under she wasn't able to get back up, or turned around, (sandbar), and the men asphyxiated or drowned…

I know there will be a full-sized replica on display at the Shiloh reenactment this Spring. Looking forward to seeing it.
