 George E. Dixon
George Dixon will probably be remembered for two things: first, commanding the CSS Hunley, the first submarine to ever sink a warship, and second, a twenty dollar double eagle gold piece he carried in his pocket.
Dixon was one of the first shot, but his leg, and probably his life (considering the state of medicine at the time), was saved when the minie ball was stopped by the gold coin in his pocket.
It was the second, christened the H.L. Hunley, that Dixon piloted on the night of February 17, 1864 when he and his crew were lost after sinking the Housatonic.
