HIlton Head ~ H. L. Hunley Lecture
H.L. Hunley- Its History, Recovery, and Restoration
Living Historian Steve Quick will tell the story of the H.L. Hunley on October 24 at 3 pm. at the Coastal Discovery Museum. Not named until after the tragic death on board of its benefactor the H.L. Hunley went on to be the first successful submarine attack in history. Its first was unfortunately also its last. Lost until its discovery in a watery grave off SC in 1996, it has been under the microscope since it was raised. It has stubbornly clung to many of its secrets for 18 years.
Since 2000 Quick has told the story across the upper Midwest to schools, libraries, museums, round tables and historical events. Relocating to SC he now brings this one of a kind story home. Part history, part technology, party mystery there is something in this compelling story for everyone.
Cost is $7 per person and reservations are required by calling 843-689-6767 ext. 223 or online at www.coastaldiscovery.org/calendar of events. The Museum is located at 70 Honey Horn Drive on Hilton Head Island.
