155 Years Ago, The U.S.S. Harvest Moon Ship Sank Off The Coast Of South Carolina Where It Remains Today

The waters near the coast in South Carolina are known to harbor sunken vessels. In August of 2000, the famous sunken submarine, the H. L. Hunley, was raised from the floor of the Atlantic where she rested for 136 years after disappearing in February of 1864. But the H. L. Hunley isn’t the only Civil War vessel to sink near the coast of South Carolina.
