In 1776 American Inventor David Bushnell built the first submarine to ever attempt an attack on a ship. Now you can build a model of this Revolutionary War Invention and learn about it’s story. 


This great FREE downloadable paper model was donated by our friend and fellow American history lover

Matt Sparks. He designed it and even wrote a booklet full of information about America’s first combat submarine.
