The Civil War Navy is Kindle Ready

We are proud to announce the exciting new publication of a magazine dedicated to documenting and archiving the history of the Civil War Navy, the brave and adventurous men and their Captains and Admirals, the ingenuity and engineering that was developed on the fly and still used today.  No one has put this all together in one place or even had the access to this creative and often highly secretive design and planning information.  George W Penington and Charles Williams are grateful to be the editor and publisher of a dynamic and exciting new magazine and to be able to present the history and facts that have in some cases never been told or explained before.  We have top of the line researchers and writers that are presenting their picks of favorite, unusual, and unexplained advancements in Naval warfare.  For more information and to donate or subscribe click here.

  A candle found in a holder may have drifted back in the submarine from the commander's station after she sank. CHARLESTON HARBOR CIVIL WAR BATTLE MAP   Locate The Three Hunley Sinkings

"One evening after alternating diving and rising many times, Dixon...and several crew members compared watches, noted the time and sank for the test...In twenty-five minutes...the candle would not burn...Each man had determined that he would not be the first to say 'up!' Not a word was said except the occasional 'How is it?' between Dixon and myself, until the word 'up' came from all nine. We started the pumps...but I realized that my pump was not throwing...I...took off the cap of the pump, lifted the valve and drew out some seaweed that had choked it...We soon had the boat to the surface...Fresh air!...We had been on the bottom for two hours and thirty-five minutes..." Lt. W.A. Alexander
