Bounty


Bounty
El Bounty fue un barco de vela de la armada británica en el que tuvo lugar el 28 de abril de 1789 un motín. El barco había sido un carguero, hasta que dos años antes la armada lo adquirió con el fin de transportar frutos del pan desde Tahití hasta el Caribe. Los frutos del pan debían constituir un alimento barato para los esclavos que trabajaban en las plantaciones de caña de azúcar.
