Submarine Day - March 17

The submarine day is a day designed to honor and cherish the manned vessel, designed to sail under the sea surface.
On March 17, 1897, Irish engineer John Philip Holland sailed the first submarine in the world off Staten Island, New York. This was not the first time he presented his submarine design. The first was introduced to the United States Navy in 1875, but they rejected his idea because they thought it would not work. He continued to work and improve his submarine, and in 1897 he sailed the first submarine that had the power to sail underwater for a considerable distance, and the first to incorporate electric motors powered by gasoline. Beginning in 1900, the Navy purchased more submarines designed by the Netherlands and the rest is history.
