The ship in question is not at all from the civil war. It is a 1930's schooner that ran aground in an earlier storm (Hugo, if I recall correctly). She has been buried and unburied by storms since then, at least 3 times.

I wonder if the CSA would have used Hunley class subs as blockade runners if the first one hadn't sunk after sinking a Union blockade ship?

Thanks Marty. Are there not tests which historians/scientists could use to discover the facts?
