Captain Bligh and loyal crew members turned adrift from the Bounty
1790 (painting by Robert Dodd)
There was a lofty ship that sailed on the sea & the name of that ship she was the HMS Bounty. A rebelling crew on the English ship was led by Fletcher Christian and sets the stage for a psychological drama starring the cruel disciplinarian master Captain Bligh VS the sensitive & proud first mate Fletcher Christian. Christian & supporters taking control, put William Bligh & 18 loyalists adrift in a launch in the South Polynesia ocean. Thus begins one of the most amazing feats in navigational history & the beginning of a British settlement that continues today!
