    Answer b) The Holland was the first commissioned submarine but the date of April 11, 1900 is actually the date that the Navy purchased the completed sub from the predecessor of EB. Gasoline-Electric Power!
    a). You may have me stumped, it may have been the Turtle but I'd have to look at the rest of the multiple choice answers!

    We, the Silent Service, thank you for the birthday wishes!

    The H.L. Hunley was used by the Confederates in the Civil War. Pretty interesting.
