The Bounty left England in late 1787 with a mission to transport Breadfruit trees from the East Indies to the West Indies. While in the Pacific, Fletcher Christian lead a successful mutiny against Captain Bligh and took over the ship.
Bligh and a few loyal men took the ships' boat and traveled over 3000 miles to an English port in present day Indonesia using only basic navigational tools.
Christian and his men and some very friendly Tahitian women took the ship to Pitcairn island where he scuttled the ship in the island's harbor and then lived in the hill country of the island in fear of being captured by any landing British ship.
Two decades later a British ship found the island and many descendants of the British crew but only 2 of the original crew members were still alive.
