The Mutiny on HMS Bounty – 28 April 1789

On 28 April 1789, Fletcher Christian and his mutineers seized control of Captain William Bligh’s ship, HMS Bounty.

We found this fascinating account of the mutiny in ‘The Oxford Journal’ of 20 March 1790, and thought we’d post this historic newspaper report on the blog.
