In 1864, the Confederate Civil War submarine H.L. Hunley became the first submersible to sink an enemy warship, but then disappeared. The remains of the Hunley were discovered in 1995 and removed from the water in 2000. Still pictures were shown as archaeologist Michael Scufuri talked about the recovery and restoration. Video from the Friends of the Hunley showed the vessel being rotated into an upright position for the first time the previous week.
