David Bushnell (1740-1826)
David Bushnell is credited as the inventor of the submarine, which was first used to launch explosives against British ships during the American Revolution (1775-83). Under a different identity, the New England native settled in Georgia after the war and spent the rest of his life there.
In his will to the prime benefactor, George Hargraves of Augusta, Bush revealed himself as David Bushnell, inventor of the submarine.
Today, Bushnell is credited with the advent of submarine warfare and, in recognition of his contributions, his adopted state declared August 2, 2004, as David Bushnell Day.
