Where's the Alligator?

It's out there someplace. The NOAA and the Office of Naval Research are about to start searching for the U.S. Navy's first submarine, which went to the bottom of the Atlantic off Cape Hatteras in 1863. Unlike the Confederacy's CSS Hunley, the USS Alligator never saw action, but it's historically significant nonetheless. Perhaps it can be recovered, as its Rebel cousin was.

Maybe they should use the (rebuilt) American Turtle to help look for it.
