British seaman who won fame as a result of the mutiny that occurred on his ship, The Bounty, in 1787.
Fletcher Christian led the mutiny against his abrasive tyranny; Bligh was cast adrift in a longboat on 4/28/1789 with 18 of his crew, they drifted over 3600 miles in severe hardship.
After being rescued, he resumed his career in the British Navy in 1791, but was dismissed in 1806. Although he was courageous and a skilled navigator, his behavior toward his people was nonetheless oppressive. In August 1808, he was named Governor of New South Wales, Australia.
Bligh died in London on 12/07/1817.
