Great pictures of the Hunley.
I have one question though regarding a technicality (as usual). One of the photos shows a bugler in period seaman's uniform playing "Taps".
Was "Taps" used by the Confederacy? Didn't Taps originate with the North during the Civil War? In other words, is it technicaly correct to play Taps as a show of respect for Southern Civil War Dead?

Just a thought.
