“Mysteriously disappeared sub”
Today, well over a century after Lt. Dixon and his courageous crew vanished, the South Carolina Hunley Commission and a private, non-profit group called the Friends of the Hunley are solving the mystery of the Hunley like a puzzle that reveals new information one piece at a time. They are engaged in the single most important underwater archaeological expedition of the century. The Hunley Commission was created by the State of South Carolina to acquire, recover, and preserve theH.L. Hunley submarine for public display. The Commission is made up of nine members, three of whom are appointed by the Governor, three of whom are appointed by the speaker of the House, and three of whom are appointed by the President Pro Temporeof the Senate. The Hunley Commission has entered into a Programmatic Agreement with the U.S. Naval Historical Center, the primary trustee of the H.L. Hunley for the federal government, to conserve and ultimately display the H.L. Hunley submarine as well as bury the remains of the brave crew. The Hunley Commission has created the Friends of the Hunley, Inc. as a 501(c)(3) corporation to aid in raising funds for the recovery, conservation, and ultimate exhibition of this historic vessel. The Hunley Commission appoints members of the Friends of the Hunley. Friends of the Hunley is a non-profit organization dedicated to helping the H.L. Hunley complete her historic journey home. The goals of the Friends of the Hunley are: to recover the remains of the brave men who gave their lives and honor them with the proper burial that they earned; to solve the mystery of that first ever submarine attack in 1864; and to conserve one of the greatest, most sought-after artifacts in the history of naval warfare.
