The pirates enslaved and killed the crews. They threw them in to prisons in Algiers, along with other sailors who had been there for decades. Once Americans found out about the hostages they began to think of ways to solve the problem. Ransoms could not be paid and America’s armed forces were not strong enough. Eventually America’s navy attacked them but failed the first time.
For the following four days , the crew was left to fend for themselves in the water suffering from starvation, dehydration, body wounds, and possibly the worst of all, shark attacks. Finally, on the fourth day the crew was discovered accidentally by Lt. Wilbur Gwinn and rescued by the USS Cecil Doyle. Of the 900 original survivors, only 317 made it out of the water. Fifty five years later, on October 12, 2000, the USS Cole also suffered a fatal attack. While in port at Aden, Yemen, the Cole was refueling when a small craft operated by two al-Qaeda radicals approached its port side and detonated around 1000 pounds of explosives resulting in

Tobacco became Virginia's first profitable export, and a period of peace followed the marriage of colonist John Rolfe to Pocahontas, the daughter of an Algonquian chief. During the 1620s, Jamestown expanded from the area around the original James Fort into a New Town built to the east; it remained the capital of the Virginia colony until 1699. Late in the 19th century, Jamestown became the focus of renewed historical interest and efforts at preservation. In 1893, a portion of the island was donated to Preservation Virginia(formerly known as The Association for the Preservation of Virginia Antiquities) for that purpose.

Three of the crew members desert the ship before the ship leaves, adding to the discontentment of the officers as well as the crew members. Shortly after the Bounty sets sail for the West Indies, Fletcher Christian leads the mutiny and forces Bligh and some of Bligh’s followers off the Bounty and onto a life boat. Bligh and his followers were striped of charts and compasses; all they were given was the life boat, the oars, a pocket watch, and a quadrant. Bligh and his eighteen followers barely survived the trip in the small boat to Timor, in the Dutch East Indies. Meanwhile, Fletcher Christian and the other crew members returned to Tahiti to reunite with their women and then set sail to Pitcairn Island.

The battle lasted for about 3 days and after which all 300 Spartans were killed. The Spartan defeat was not the one expected, as a local shepherd, named Ephialtes, defected to the Persians and informed Xerxes of a separate path through Thermopylae, which the Persians could use to outflank the Greeks. The Protagonist King Leonidas would be considered a hero in my eyes. Though throughout the course of the movie, with every person he killed he had a look of satisfaction as if he enjoyed killing. In which case that can lead to too an anti-hero in the eyes of others.
In 1614, Captain John Smith had passed through the region, and one of his lieutenants kidnapped Squanto and some twenty other Patuxets, planning to sell the Indians in the slave market of Malaga, Spain. After escaping to England, where he learned to speak English, Squanto returned to New England in 1619, only to discover that his village had been wiped out by a chicken pox epidemic--one of many epidemics that killed about 90 percent of New England's coastal Indian people between 1616
