Posted by Gilbert Stack on September 8, 2018 at 9:30 AM

On this day (September 7) in 1776, the United States made the first submarine attack in history. The submarine was called the Turtle and it was piloted by Ezra Lee. It attacked the British ship, Eagle. The plan was to attach a time bomb to the ship, but Lee was unable to stab the bomb into the underside of the ship and was forced to call off the attack.
