CSS Hunley - Women in Mourning Clothes

This photograph was taken on April 17, 2004 in Charleston – during the CSS Hunley funeral procession.

This was the last official funeral of the US Civil War.

The CSS H. L. Hunley was the first submarine to successfully sink an enemy warship. While they were successful in their mission, they sank while returning to shore.  The CSS Hunley was raised in 2000. The 8 crewmen were laid to rest the day this photograph was taken.
