Plunge into one of the greatest unsolved mysteries of the American Civil War as National Geographic goes in search of the truth about the ill-fated Confederate submarine H.L. Hunley. Discover the desperate ingenuity behind the creation of the first submarine ever to sink an enemy ship in battle. Witness researchers' attempts to learn why the Hunley sank and what became of its crew. Join the mission to raise the primitive "hand-powered" sub and be there as the Hunley is opened for the first time in more than a century. Considered the ultimate secret weapon by some, a seagoing coffin by others, the legendary warship will break its 136-year silence at last in Raising the Hunley.

How our DVDs and DVD-Rs Differ
Customers who purchase programs in the NG DVD Exclusives Library will receive a non-interactive, play only disc. There is no chaptering information on these DVDs, but there are chapter marks approximately every five minutes, which make it easy to fast forward through a program. The DVD-R format provides the digital video and audio quality you expect from all of our DVDs.
NOTE: The NG DVD Exclusives titles are not closed-captioned. We apologize for any inconvenience this limitation may cause.
