Sunken German U-boat becomes state's first diving preserve
By Tom Keyser and Tom Keyser,Sun Staff Writer | May 8, 1995
Visitors to Maryland's newest park can forget their grills and lawn chairs, but they'd better bring wet suits. That's because the "park" is at the bottom of the Potomac River -- a sunken World War II-era German submarine.Today, Lt. Gov. Kathleen Kennedy Townsend and assorted dignitaries will dedicate the U-1105 Black Panther Historic Shipwreck Preserve off Piney Point in St. Mary's County. A mile offshore in about 85 feet of murky water, the 51-year-old submarine is Maryland's first diving preserve and one of fewer than 20 such preserves in the country.

The daring feat of the German submarine Deutschland
By Albert J. Silverman | July 10, 1991

It was front-page news in The Sun, which hailed the event with these words:"Completing one of the most remarkable trips by a craft of its type ever attempted and making good a boast of the Germans that it could be done, the submarine Deutschland, carrying 1,000 tons of cargo, appeared in the Virginia Capes yesterday and will dock in Baltimore today.
