On Saturday, April 17, 2004, the crew of the
H.L. Hunley
was laid to rest in funeral ceremonies in Charleston, SC.
For 8 hours, Charleston went back in time to host what many are calling
“The Last Civil War Funeral
as the remains of the final crew of the Confederate submarine Hunley,
were escorted on horse drawn caissons through town to the
city’s oldest cemetery.
9,000 reenactors from around the world
were in attendance to pay their respects.
Miss Ellie and Phillip Neal, of Lake Village
participated in the ceremonies. Miss Ellie captured
