J.F. Carlsen (left) was the newest member of the H.L. Hunley's crew when it sank. He was only 20 to 23 years old. James A. Wicks (right) was born in North Carolina around 1819. He was one of only three Hunley crewmen, along with Joseph Ridgaway and Frank Collins, born in the South. The National Geographic Expeditions Council helped fund the raising of the Hunley and the analysis of the materials found inside.
