When the Confederate submarine, HL Hunley, disappeared near the Charleston harbor in 1864, the cause was assumed to be collateral damage from a blast sustained by a larger, nearby ship. But when the sub was raised 131 years later, all eight crew members were still at their posts, their skeletons—and the sub's hull—intact. What happened?
