The Hunley – Photo Gallery

National Geographic offers a small photo gallery of the newly restored and displayed Hunley. If you’ve read any of the previous Hunley posts, you’ve probably seen most of these pictures, but the first is pretty revealing: The fully “restored” (it looks extra crumbly) sub with a restorer or museum staffer next to it. It’s bad enough to think about what the Hunley crews went through, but to have suffocated after spending hours trapped in that claustrophobic tin can makes it all the worse.
