CSS Hunley replica makes 'maiden voyage' in Jacksonville Veterans Day parade

Via Billy

 
Fully restored after months of work, the Sons of Confederate Veterans Kirby-Smith Camp's half-scale CSS Hunley sits outside on its display trailer.
A replica of a historic weapon of war has been renewed by a Jacksonville group to honor those who died in battle 148 years ago.

The half-scale model of the CSS Hunley, the first submarine to sink a ship in battle, will make its post-restoration maiden voyage in Monday’s Veterans Day parade in Jacksonville to honor the Confederate soldiers who died sailing it.
