It was the invention of Irish-American inventor John Phillip Holland,he is credited with the invention of the modern submarine.
He is also the founder of the Electric Boat Company of New London Connecticut. He sold his "Holland Boats" to Great Britain (Holland 1) which was restored and still exists, and is in the Royal Navy's submarine museum,in Portsmouth. And to the Japanese!
