On February 17th, 1864 the CSS H.L. Hunley was the first submarine to sink an enemy ship in combat. The sub was lost that night as well, when it sank just outside Charleston Harbour in SC. with all eight crew members perishing. Crew member James A. Wicks was from North Carolina. Whereas it played a small role in Civil War history it played a major role in American naval history. The Confederate States of America Submarine's brave crew is listed below. Buried beneath this marker are partial sedimentary remains of those brave naval men taken from the sub when it was raised from the floor of the ocean on August 8th, 2000.
