I too was brought up believing Hollywoods version of history in general.

 

Captain |Bligh did wrong when he was keeping water from the men, but he was under orders to take breadfruit plants to feed the slaves. He was not a mean B as portrayed. He became governor of New South Wales and sorted out the red coats who were determined to grab everything for themselves. He was fair and compassionate as well as being a brilliant navigator.

 

I recently visited the Museum of Garden History next to Lambeth palace. It is in a deconsecrated church, William Bligh was buried there it was an unexpected bonus.
