Replica of Civil War sub stuck beside interstate
ATLANTA (AP) - March 30, 2012 (WPVI) -- A trailer carrying a 40-foot replica of a Confederate submarine to Tennessee for a re-enactment of the Battle of Shiloh blew two tires on an interstate in Atlanta and later headed back to South Carolina after repairs.
The full-sized replica of the H.L. Hunley suffered only minor damage Thursday, but owner John Dangerfield returned to Charleston because of trailer problems, said Kellen Correia, executive director of the Friends of the Hunley.
The Hunley was the first sub to sink an enemy warship.
Dangerfield is a veteran Hunley project volunteer who built the replica from a model used in a TV movie about the Civil War sub. One side is open to view where the crew sat.
Dangerfield is selling it and wanted to show it one last time at Shiloh.
