Hulk Submarine

There's nothing sadder than the wreck of a once-great submarine
This submersible was built between 1863 and 1866 by Julius H. Kroehl and Ariel Patterson in Brooklyn, NY for the Pacific Pearl Company. Overfishing of the pearl beds and problems with decompression sickness led to the abandonment of the ship in Panama in 1869. It was rediscovered in 2001 by archeologist James P. Delgado. It was well-known to locals, but they believed it was from World War II.
They dove beneath the waves, and helped to win massive global wars. But submarines can't submerge forever. Eventually, these old warhorses get swept away by history. Here are some images of the most haunting dead submarines of all time.
