Civil War submarine is iron; not wood

Glad to hear that Emerson is working on the H.L. Hunley. However, I believe that the submarine is iron, not wood, as stated in the article ["Rosemount Analytical continues to assist preservation of Civil War sub," Best Practices, News, CE, Jan.'02, p. 19].

Glad to hear that Emerson is working on the H.L. Hunley. However, I believe that the submarine is iron, not wood, as stated in the article ["Rosemount Analytical continues to assist preservation of Civil War sub," Best Practices, News, CE, Jan.'02, p. 19]. Also, the most important element of the Hunley's history is that it was the first submarine that succeeded in sinking an enemy craft in wartime. I believe the Hunley was also on its second mission, though there may have been more, and not its first, though this was the first "successful" mission, if you count all on board dying as a success!
