American vessel Turtle (1776), the first submarine to be used in war, 19th century

American vessel Turtle (1776), the first submarine to be used in war, 19th century. Designed by David Bushnell (1742-1824), the vessel was propelled by a crank and contained sufficient air for a 30 minute submersion. During the American War of Independence (1775-1783) several attempts were made to use Turtle, armed with a single mine, to blow up British warships. This shows Sergeant Ezra Lee on 6 September 1776 during his abortive attack on the Eagle, one of the British ships blockading New York Harbour
