3rd Friday on 3rd Street Presentation: Discover the CSS H.L. Hunley!

Time: 6:00 pm til 7:30 pm

Location: Amelia Island Museum of History, 233 S. 3rd St., Fernandina Beach

Description: This month the museum is excited to welcome Underwater Archeologist Ralph Wilbanks. Wilbanks has the distinction of discovering the CSS H. L. Hunley, a Civil War era submarine which sank in Charleston Harbor in 1864. The Hunley demonstrated both the advantages and risks associated with undersea warfare and was the first submarine in history to sink an enemy warship. Unfortunately, the Hunley mysteriously disappeared after a successful mission and was not rediscovered until 1995. Join us as we learn more about this historic vessel's discovery and recovery. Admission is free for museum members with a suggested donation of $10 for nonmembers.
