Historic Sea Mutiny Lecture
Retired Barnstable Judge Greg Williams will discuss a 19th century mutiny and the fabled career of Sea Capt. "Mad Jack" Percival on Feb. 26 at the Cultural Center of Cape Cod.
A findings of a bloody mutiny on a Nantucket whaleship by Barnstable’s “Mad Jack” Percival will be discussed in a lecture at the Cultural Center of Cape Cod in South Yarmouth on Feb. 26.
Years before Barnstable’s Captain “Mad Jack” Percival sailed the “USS Constitution” around the world, he was sent to an atoll in the South Pacific to learn what happened in a bloody mutiny on the Nantucket whaleship “Globe” and follow through accordingly. The mutiny of the crew occurred in January 1824, 900 miles south of the Hawaiian Islands, when one whaleman harbored dreams of becoming king of his own South Sea island.
