Under the command of Lieutenant George Dixon and his crew, the Confederate Navy scored the first victory for a Submarine in the history of naval warfare. On the night of February 17, 1864, Dixon and his eight man crew piloted this strange vessel with it's unique torpedo spar into the side of the U.S.S. Housationic and lit up Charleston Harbor, South Carolina with a deadly fireworks display. The jubilant Confederates in shore batteries nearby were quieted when, by the next morning, the Hunley failed to resurface.
