      Although the article devotes a lot of space to ballast tanks being
      open at the top, this is the first I've heard that work was
      continuing.
      Perhaps there will be new theories about how it sunk. The single
      bullet theory seems to be dead. ( see

        Hello Everyone,

        Just returned from vacation to N.C., S.C., Fla & Georgia. I was SO
        looking forward to seeing the Hunley. But alas, tours are now being
        limited to weekends, and I was in Charleston on a Tues & Wed.

        However, I did get to take in Forts Sumter, Moultrie, Johnson,
        and "The Battery". Patriots Point was great also (WWII ships
        including a submarine and the Yorktown, which was awesome.

        Well, it looks like I have a lot of catching up to do. The thread
        on Halleck looks very interesting.

        Best to all,
        Joe H.

            The battery is the walk along the Charleston water-line (near the very nicest homes), a mile across the water from it is Ft. Sumter. It was called the battery first in 1812 when it was covered with cannon by the Americans to keep out the British (who took Charleston in the battle of Fort Moultrie). I was born at a hospital on the battery and lived in the St. Phillips Rectory for the first quarter of my life.
