The Whaleship Charles W Morgan

It was 1841 and one of the whaleships heading out of New Bedford on the morning tide carried a new crewman on his first whale hunt. Herman Melville was to become famous as the author of a great classic nautical novel, Moby Dick , that has become a popular read down generations and across the world. As Herman Melville watched the receding shore, a new whale ship was being launched from a New Bedford yard.
