Tenn. Researchers Work on Hunley Mystery





A team of scientists from Tennessee, including experts from the Oak Ridge National Laboratory, are looking at the mystery of the sinking of the Confederate submarine H.L. Hunley, the first sub in history to sink an enemy warship.

The group, which also includes scientists from the University of Tennessee and the Y12 National Security Complex, was here Monday examining the sub.

The visit is the result of the university's relationship with best-selling crime author Patricia Cornwell who in February announced she would donate at least $500,000 to the Hunley project.
