We're immersing ourselves into the Civil War, as we celebrate the 150th anniversary. The anniversary of the Battle of First Manassas will be next weekend, and that's right around us. We really enjoyed this book about the first submarine and the mystery of what happened to the sailors. A real plus is the unbiased approach, explaining a bit of the Civil War without taking sides.
I think that this book was great. Since I am from Charleston, I can remember when the Hunley was raised out of the water. I can also remember some of the controversy that came along with it being raised. It is a great way to take a look back in time.
