Today in History, February 17th,

On February 17th, 1864, the Confederate submarine CSS Hunley sunk the Union warship USS Housatonic by ramming it with a spar torpedo.  The torpedo embedded in the ship’s hull was detonated by a rope as the Hunley backed away.  The Hunley would go down in history as the first submarine to successfully sink a ship.  Unfortunately the Hunley itself sunk shortly after detonating it’s torpedo.
