A Brief History of the Civil War Submarine H.L. Hunley: Its Past, Its Loss, Its Recovery, Its Preservation

By Jon Tirpak

 

Erie Maritime Museum

Thursday, October 23, 2014

5:00 pm Cocktail Reception

6:00 pm Speaker Presentation

Tickets: $20 for non-members/ $15 for members

The H.L. Hunley was the first submarine to sink an enemy ship in combat on February 17, 1864. Unfortunately, the Hunley was also lost that day. She was successfully recovered from the sea off the coast of Charleston, South Carolina in August 2000. The H.L. Hunley represents an exciting future in maritime archaeology and conservation science. From its shrouded birth, to its climatic sinking, to the present day, the H.L. Hunley continues to draw attention from local traditionalists, national historians and international scientists. This preservation will stitch together the past, present and future as he provides highlights to the vessel’s construction, loss, recovery and preservation.

Mr. Jon Tirpak is currently Senior Program Manager for the SCRA Applied R&D Advanced Materials Division in Charleston, South Carolina. He serves on the Finance, Investment, 100th Anniversary Celebration and Web Committees of ASM International. He also Vice President Elect of the Friends of the H.L. Hunley.
