Crew members of the Hunley, a Confederate submarine, were buried after a memorial service Saturday in South Carolina. The sub mysteriously sank in 1864 after sinking a Union sloop during the Civil War. The well-preserved remains of the Hunley's eight-man crew were recovered four years ago when the wreck was lifted from the waters off the coast of Charleston, S.C. NPR's Adam Hochberg reports.
