You Should have been at the memorial service at Mount Holly Cemetery April 7th and spoke with Mr. Randy Burbage, who was the guest speaker from South Carolina. If you were there I did not see you.
Mr. Burbage is an expert on the CSS Hunley and deeply involved with its restoration, preservation and History including the crews of the Hunley. He gave an excellent accounts of Seaman Charles Sprague who came to the Hunley on recommendation as and expert Torpedo man. Sprague Survived the first sinking of the Hunley but died when the Hunley sank the second time.
