Henry Hudson was an English sea explorer . He was born in 1565 and died in 1611 . He sailed 3 times for England (1607 - 1611) and 1 time for the Dutch (1609) . However , he never found what he was sent to look for . This storyboard will be about his most popular journey , also his last journey .
Hi there . I'm Henry Hudson . I'm a failure .
It's April 1610 , the British East India Company funded Hudson and a crew to go find the northwest passage . He brought along his 2 sons Robert Juet and John . Supplies were low and the weather was terrible . The crew struggled to keep warm and stay alive .
Cough noise , it's cold , take us home .
I never loved you dad !
The crew grew angry . They wanted to go home and Hudson wouldn't let them . This led to mutiny , the crew (and Hudson's older son) kicked Hudson and his youngest son off . Hudson yet again failed to find the northwest passage . The body of water he was in was later named the Hudson bay and the Hudson river . One very interesting fact is that no one can really tell if he died then and there . Obviously he's not alive today , but he could've lived passed that cold morning of June 1611 .
