Confederate Submarine

Host Bob Edwards talks with South Carolina state Senator Glenn McConnell about plans to raise a Confederate submarine, sunk for the final time in 1864. The CSS Hunley lies a few miles off the coast near Charleston. The senator is leading efforts to raise the sub in 2001, and to bury that crew along with its previous crews ... one of which is believed to be buried beneath the football stadium at the Citadel military college.
