Interesting News on the Confederate Sub "H.L. Hunley"

If you haven't seen it yet, an interesting report came out today on the sinking of the Confederate submarine H.L. Hunley following her successful attack on a Union warship off Charleston Harbor.

The finding, in basic, is that the crew of the Hunley might have suffocated from lack of oxygen due to "human error" as opposed to the traditional theory that the sub was someone damaged in the attack and sank, drowning the men.

Here's a link to the article. I think you might find it interesting:
