It all started with this library book:
Be aware that at the end of this video he gives a ringing tribute to the Confederate men who died in the Hunley. I agree that they died a tragic death as brave pioneers in a risky endeavor, but I don't agree with the cause they died fighting for.
This has some fun views of Clive Cussler and his team that discovered the Hunley.
He now has a "Hunley Museum" on a shelf in his room, packed with all his Hunley memorabilia.
|This is the small Hunley model that he and Phil brought home from their trip.|
|This is the postcard they bought to show his classmates.|
|This page says, "The Hunley was at the dock."|
|"The Housatonic was at the dock."|
|"The Hunley went out to sink the Housatonic."|
|What he wanted to say on this page was a bit too long for him to write, so he recruited me to do it for him! Down on the bottom is his phonetic spelling of "Housatonic" : hsutci|
|"The Hunley sank the Hoosutonik!"|
|This is his favorite picture of the Hunley that he has framed in his room.|
|He has built several versions of the Hunley in Legos. This is just the first version. He later built a much larger and more detailed model that we didn't get pictures of.|
|This is the barge and frame bringing up the Hunley from the bottom of the ocean.|
|Please overlook the fact that the frame is actually smaller than the Hunley! He ran out of Legos!|
|The Hunley attacking the Housatonic (played here by his Viking ship).|
Here is O boy's tour of his Hunley museum. This was actually before he knew he was going to go see the real Hunley.
