The Pioneer

Today we are visiting the museum of the first submarine to ever sink a ship… The Hunley.
Horace Hunley was a business man who organized the building of three submarines for the Confederacy. The first of these, pictured here, was the Pioneer. They had to destroy it however, when
Admiral Farragut captured Mobile, AL in 1864, to keep it out of the hands of the Unions.
