PLEASE NOTE: THIS PROGRAM WAS ORIGINALLY SCHEDULED FOR NOVEMBER 2 BUT HAS BEEN RESCHEDULED TO THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 17 AT 7 P.M. Dr.Bellantoni was forced to change the lecture date due to the snow storm that caused damage to his house.

Dr. Nicholas Bellantoni, our state archaeologist,  will speak about “The Search for Ezra Chamberlin and the Confederate Submarine H. L. Hunley”.  In 2000, the Confederate submarine H.L. Hunley, the first submarine to sink an enemy ship in combat, was raised from the depths of Charleston Harbor and seen for the first time in 136 years. An archaeological investigation of the Hunley’s interior yielded a surprising item--the identification tag of Ezra Chamberlin, a Union soldier from Killingly, Connecticut. Did this Connecticut Yankee die on a Confederate submarine?  While telling the story of the Hunley, Dr. Bellantoni searches for the fate of Ezra Chamberlin.
