PENDLETON -- Stéphanie A. Cretté, director of the Warren Lasch Conservation Center at Clemson University's Restoration Institute, will visit Tri-County Technical College February 23 to discuss the H.L. Hunley, a submarine for the Confederate Army that was discovered in 1995 and currently under restoration in Charleston. 

The presentation will be held from 1:20 - 2:20 p.m. in the Marshall Parker Auditorium on the Pendleton Campus. This event is sponsored by the Enrichment Series Committee.  The event is free and open to the public.

The H. L. Hunley was a submarine for the Confederate Army during the Civil War. She is credited as the first combat submarine to sink a warship. After the attack on the warship, the Hunley sank near Charleston, SC, in February 1864. In 1995 the Hunley's location was discovered and finally was recovered in 2000.  It is now on display in Charleston as it undergoes restoration.
