Civil War Submarines

Thanks to DQ reader Fernando Rizo for the link to an article about a Civil War submarine being found--in Panama! Here's an excerpt:
She was built in 1864 by a visionary craftsman, Julius Kroehl, for the Union forces during the American Civil War. But the boat, called Explorer, was never used in the conflict and was subsequently taken to Panama where she was used to harvest pearls.

It's an excellent article and you can find it here:,,2-1642355,00.html.
