Is there any pics of the raising of the Hunley on the internet? I missed all the news on t.v

"Butterfield's Lullaby" hummed by Dan Butterfield to a bugler who played it back and then wrote the notes on the back of an envelope. It was not the "Dan, Dan, Dan, Butterfield, Butterfield" that was written for Vincent's Brigade before a bugler would blow a call for the brigade.

"Taps" soon spread throughout the Union camps as a good night call for the troops. It was not used as a funeral call until after the WBTS.

To answer Bill's question "Taps" is a proper song for the Hunley's crew, as the Confederate army(at least the ANV) did hear the call and started to use it.
