Apr 28, 2021 · On April 28, a group of mutineers led by Christian armed themselves with the Bounty ’s muskets and burst into Bligh’s cabin, taking him prisoner. “I have been in hell for weeks past with you,” Christian reportedly told Bligh. Chaos ensued and the ship’s crew split into two factions, one loyal to Bligh, the other determined to desert.
The mutiny on the Royal Navy vessel HMS Bounty occurred in the South Pacific Ocean on 28 April 1789. Disaffected crewmen, led by acting-Lieutenant Fletcher Christian, seized control of the ship from their captain, Lieutenant William Bligh, and set him and eighteen loyalists adrift in the ship's open launch.
