The Confederate submarine H.L. Hunley was the first submarine to successfully sink an enemy warship, sinking the USS Housatonic on February 17, 1864. The Hunley sank while returning to Charleston Harbor, after the attack. This submarine was one of as many as a dozen Confederate midget submarines that were completely or partially built during the war, but was the only one to be used in battle. Of interest is that the designer was from Ohio and only a third of the crew was Southern.
